“Different and fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

They play movies that were out a couple months ago however they also do special performances and comedy nights. It's a theatre that has tables instead of regular seats and waitresses that bring food and beer all night long. A really good time. Movie is always cheap. Saw Craig Robinson (Darryl from The Office) and the Nasty Delicious there as well as several movies over the years and it's always a good time!

“Local theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Nothing like sitting at a table and eating your burger, fries and a cold draft while watching your favorite movie!

“Fun place to take in a movie or event”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Cinema & Drafthouse has become my go-to place to watch the superbowl with friends. Has a good bar, passable bar food, and lots of room to take in a fun event like the superbowl with a large group of friends. Also nearby a great irish bar and japanese restaurant if you want to take a break at half-time for a little change of pace.

“Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Great place to see movies and get some reasonably good eats. Monday is dollar night--definitely the best night to go. Great vintage Arlington atmosphere. They check everyone's ID.

“Cheep Seats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

They have updated the seats and spread them out a bit from the old. The food is the same, but it's fun to be able to have a drink and watch a movie for <$6.00. Be sure to check out Monday when prices are really low. Why pay $11.50 when you can pay $1.50. Have a sangria and enjoy the show.
