We came for the Tuesday $2 movie. This place was great - a unique experience and a great movie. If you want perfect silence and a reclining chair go to an AMC, but this place has character! If you have never been here before I...More

I've been to the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse (aka AC/DH) several times, but have only been to the movie showings. I would like to see comedy show sometime, but tickets can sell out very quickly. It's a fun, quirky place to see a movie and...More

I watched 2 classic Halloween movies here in night of Halloween. We had a blast. It's an old theatre and you can sit on old desk chairs. You can order simple foods (we ordered a pizza) - much more relaxed than the real movie theaters.

My family LOVES this place (2 teenagers). We can get movie tickets online beforehand, then enjoy our favorite snacks, fast food and comfort food during the movies. Make a note: if you would like to get a good seat for the movie, GO EARLY! This...More

It's always offers great comedians. But during the Xmas holidays they show Xmas movies. Great food, too!

We have seen two comedy shows there so far, and both were people from SNL. We really enjoyed ourselves. First time we got there shortly after the doors opened and we were sitting in the back (we had 4 people). We could see but it...More
