Just saw Mr. Sedaris and realized that it has been too long since attending an event at the Arlington. What a cool and unique theater. It's massive inside, yet has a home town feel. The Spanish details and starry sky ceiling are one in a million. Whether you're there for film festival or snowboard/surf flick, it never fails to complete the experience.

We went to the Arlington to see a David Sedaris talk. The theater takes you back to another era. Its most unique feature is a Mexican village built into its interior walls.
The seats are another matter. I am tall and when I sat down there was little room to squirm. The legroom was minimal. It almost made me long for economy class seating on an airplane. We were on the mezzanine but noted that the last row had some additional legroom.
The local arts and lecture website's seating was no longer available, but switching over to ticketmaster gave us a good choice of seats.

This lovely old theatre has charm and beauty. Unfortunately, if disabled, one can not get to the mezzaine which offers tremedous views of the stage. - lots of stairs, no elevator.
