Additionally, 10 percent of the proceeds raised from online sales of Hunger Games-themed digital gift cards will be donated to partnering food banks. The gift cards are available online from Oct. 23  to Nov. 25 at

Studio Movie Grill’s “Fight Against Hunger” will offer the discounted rate on every movie from open to close Oct. 19-22.

Studio Movie Grill Scottsdale, 15515 N. Hayden Road, Scottsdale, will partner with St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance.

“’SMG exists to open hearts and minds one story at a time, and with this campaign we hope to make the issue of hunger a little bit easier for those less fortunate in our communities. As illustrated in Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, tremendous things can happen when people come together for a good cause. I’m extremely proud of our own SMG team members who have also taken it upon themselves to volunteer at their local food banks at this time, demonstrating that each of us can affect change,” said Brian Schultz, SMG founder and CEO.

Studio Movie Grill modernized the traditional movie-going experience by combining first-run movies with full-service, in-theater dining. Established in 2000, SMG has grown to 23 locations in 10 states.
