Gaucho Grill: Grand Re-Opening

On Saturday, August 25th Gaucho Grill's Grand Opening took place as a huge success. We are thrilled to have this culturally-emboldened restaurant project added to our portfolio, and we wish Gaucho Grill in West Covina, CA all the best in dining success! This property previously existed as a Chinese restaurant, and has now been completely remodeled into a contemporary celebration of the tradition, values and culture of the Gaucho lifestyle. The remodeled dining venue includes an enlarged patio outside, a full bar inside, and a Argentinian-inspired mural along the dining room wall. Congratulations Gaucho Grill!


We have great news! This week marks the grand opening of Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas Victory Park in Dallas, Texas! At 44,000 square feet, Victory Park marks the second largest draw in the district's main corridor, behind only the American Airlines Center, home to the Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars

Cinépolis Junior: Creating a Kid-Friendly Cinema Experience

This month's edition of Shopping Centers Today shines the spotlight on Cinépolis Junior—an imaginative and colorful space that has been specially designed to accommodate kids and their unique experience at the movies. Cinépolis Junior shows G and PG movies only and allows 15-20 minutes of playtime before the movie and half-way through the flick. Cinépolis Junior is really creating something special for the little ones with this vibrant and bean-bag-laden theater where playtime is encouraged, however in a structured fashion. SMS Architects is well acquainted with Cinépolis Junior's existing locations in Vista and Pico Rivera. We were the architect for these family- and kid-friendly cinemas. We are so happy to hear that Cinépolis Junior is expanding to more locations!
