We saw Joe Bonamassa and his band and not only did they give an incredible performance, but the venue has amazing acoustics. The ceiling is painted to resemble the sky and you have this incredible feeling of being at an outdoor concert. The theatre seats 2,000 but manages to have an intimate feel of a smaller venue. Sold out show, great theatre, great night.

Really loved this theatre. I'd heard good things about the interior, but seeing the faux spanish buildings on either side were more delightful than I could have imagined. Took off one point because the lobby is too small for the venue; at intermission, it was all but impossible to move. If the other theatres on State Street are half as nice as this one, the people of Santa Barbara are very lucky people.

Fun to see a movie or concert here. Interior dramatic, Spanish style balconies all around, stars in the "sky." Very well preserved movie palace.

The Arlington is a spacious venue for movie going or to see a live performance or performer. It is not a state-of-the-art fancy theatre, but comfortable. The only problem is that State St. has very little parking. But, during the SBIFF, many actors receiving an award from the Film Festival will get them at the Arlington.

They have both movies and live performance here, I've only been here for movies. This huge single screen theatre is set up like a street in a Mexican village with facades of homes to either side. It feels like seeing a movie at sunset as the lights fade over the village. It is a beautiful historic building in the heart of Santa Barbara
