“It could be so much better”

Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse
Ranked #24 of 109 things to do in Arlington
Attraction details
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The concept of the Cinema and Drafthouse is great. Drink, eat, more relaxing seating and it is usually a movie you have aalready seen, so you don't mind any other little distraction, like the waitresses. I don't know why this concept isn't going on all over the country. The thing about the Cinema and Drafthouse I am not a fan of is the cleanliness. It could use a real good cleaning, that would go a long way. I think they could do a lot of other updates to everything from the food to the decor to really make it a premier location to head out to.

The Arlington Draft House is a theater outside of Washington, DC where you can go to watch movies (Mon/Tues.) for $2 or Wednesday - Sunday for $6.50. The movies are still slightly new coming from the main movie theaters had you not had the chance to view them so you go here!

There is one day during the week, early afternoon, dedicated for children's movies and families. They have wine nights on Friday's and a lot other things such as comedy and football watching for great fun with low to free pricing.

I always order the Fish and Chips but this time around it was not as good as the first time. They changed the fish and it was not a good replacement. The pizza is very delicious. It has an excellent crust. The mixed drinks are watery so I would order a beer if you are a beer drinker as well. The food is priced okay considering the movies are between $2-$6.50.

They have new seating and it is very comfortable. The staff are very friendly. My food is always delivered fast and the food runners are very nice. Great place to go alone, with family or friends.

Food is pretty average -- or mediocre. But it's a good place to take kids and watch a movie -- particularly on Mondays, when movies are $2.

This place is fun! Not fancy, not great food but, fun. Also they have speed comedy night for anyone wanting to try/hone their skills here. Also have celebrity comedians from time to time. Nice art house and mainstream movies that have since passed the box office draws but not too far from "new releases".

Miss you guys and gals!

Guys, it's one of those spots you just come anytime and chill. Out tonight with the wife and friends and the staff has been outstanding. Foods ok, but stop by the bar out front and see Eric (The Bartender), his drinks on point!!!!'
