About the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse
The Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse is A unique combination of a full restaurant located inside a theater. Customers enjoy a full restaurant/bar menu and table side service while sitting in oversized comfortable chairs.
The “Drafthouse” replaced the Arlington Theater or “Old Arlington” as it was affectionately known in 1985. The building itself is over 70 years old.
The Theater has had a rich history of entertaining DC Area residents with great movies. If you look back over the last 50+ years and picked your most favorite movies, it is likely they have been featured here.
The Theater also has a rich history of live entertainment. In fact, tucked behind the large movie screen is the original theater stage equipped with lighting, storage and a green room.
The theater is now currently owned and operated by a local family, looking to continue the historic traditions of “Old Arlington” and the “Drafthouse”. We plan to cultivate and improve the Drafthouse experience.
