The Studio C Alpha Beta Mix is a combination of the Studio C Beta with Studio C Alpha that operated at seven Chuck E. Cheese's restaurants. In fact, it is the prototype of the Studio C Beta.

This Studio C stage was first tested at the Athens, Georgia, Midland, Texas, and Brownsville, Texas restaurants in April 2000. This stage had a one year testing period before Studio C Beta rolled out the same year.

This stage was installed in the location in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It looked very different compared to the others, as it had two blue screens, two TV monitors and two interactive consoles from the Studio C Alpha. In addition to having Bird, it also had the pizza phone. The stage was Unique compared to the other Alpha Beta Mixes. It closed on June 18th, 2019.

Another unique location with this stage was Clarksville, TN. It was the last location to install a stage of this kind in the United States, opening in February 2001. Clarksville featured a unique TV setup to the right of the stage with a unique TV base, and a light display on top of the TV, making it the only location to have this. It was also the third to last location with a Studio C Alpha Beta mix to have Bird. It was the last location with this stage to feature working curtains. It was one of two of Tennesssee’s Prototype/Test Stages, the other one being a Prototype/Test Studio C Cappa located at the Jackson, TN location to this day. Clarksville remodeled in fall 2019, replacing their stage.

As of 2022, Midland, Texas is the last location with an Alpha/Beta Mix after the Athens, Georgia location remodeled to 2.0 in March of 2022.[1]

The Stage[]

It has Chuck E. Cheese, his companion Bird, the clock, and the background looks like the top of a grill and a curve with different lights like the panels of Studio C Alpha. Athens, Georgia, is the last location to still have Bird. There is also an applause sign similar to the one used by Rolfe DeWolfe from The Rock-afire Explosion.
