Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse: Putting a New Spin on ‘Dinner and a Movie’

What was once home to a 1930s-era Art Deco theatre now hosts Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse. Rated the best movie theater in northern Virginia by NOVA magazine, Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse is a little different from your standard multiplex. Here, movie-goers can enjoy their flick while sipping an ice-cold beer and nibbling bar bites such as cheese fries, nachos, pizza, and, of course, popcorn. Servers tend to your needs throughout your movie, ensuring your glass never stays empty for too long.

Behind the movie screen is a full theatrical stage, a testament to the venue's past, and the space is sometimes still used for live entertainment, most notably frequent stand-up comedy performances and live music. Tickets are cash only, but you can use your credit or debit card for food and drink purchases.
