Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse information
Ice-cold beer and second-run films at bargain prices? Count us in. You'll find comfy chairs for flick-viewing, a menu of sandwiches, pizzas and, of course, popcorn, as well as brews, wine and cocktails (this is one of the few places in DC where you can drink and catch a movie at the same time). Don't miss $2 admission on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Some nights the theater skips the movies and hosts stand-up comedy instead. There are also family-oriented programs some weekends. It’s about a mile from the Metro; grab a cab or the route 16 bus from the station. You need to be at least 21 years to enter (or with a parent).
