Brian Schultz, credited as the innovator of in-theater dining and a champion for the cinematic experience, is the CEO and Founder of LOOK Cinemas – a technology-first luxury cinema brand located in Arizona, California, Florida, New York and Texas, with new locations opening across the country.
Previously, Schultz worked in the political sphere as an aide to the late United States Senator from Pennsylvania, Arlen Specter. During Schultz’ tenure with Senator Specter, he attended a film at the Bethesda Cinema ‘n Drafthouse in Maryland, and immediately fell in love with the concept of serving food while watching a movie. This experience planted the seed for what would become Studio Movie Grill, his first in-theater dining company, opening the first of several locations in 1993.
As an advocate for conscious capitalism, Schultz aligns his business practices with his own personal philosophy, “the more you give, the more you get.” LOOK Cinemas creates jobs that pay living wages and provides a shared space for the community to come together.
Schultz, received a Bachelor of Science in Business Finance from California State University and currently resides in Texas.
