The Drafthouse is a historic 1930's Art Deco Theater that has been converted into a comfortable unique restaurant/theater with comfortable office style chairs and table side service. We offer a full restaurant menu including appetizers, salads, entrees, desserts and of course popcorn. In addition to great food we offer a full service bar including beer, wine and mixed drinks. Our seating are large comfortable leather office style chairs. Every seat has access to a table or counter inside the theater! Yes our restaurant is inside the theater space with each seat having a great view of the action. Best of all - for most of our events we offer table side service inside the theater/restaurant.

ARRIVE EARLY AND ORDER EARLY. The Drafthouse expirience is slightily different than a regular restaurant.  We always recommend ordering drinks and food right away as eveything is processed as it is received.  Our servers do their best to make multiple rounds to the table, but with limited time during events it is best to order all of your items early and at the same time.

The Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse is a unique combination of a full restaurant located inside a theater. Customers enjoy a full restaurant/bar menu and table side service while sitting in oversized comfortable office style chairs. 
 
The “Drafthouse” replaced the Arlington Theater or “Old Arlington” as it was affectionately known in 1985. The building itself is over 90 years old. 
 
The Theater has had a rich history of entertaining DC Area residents with great movies. If you look back over the last 70+ years and picked your most favorite movies, it is likely they have been featured here. 
 
The Theater also has a rich history of live entertainment. In fact, tucked behind the large movie screen is the original theater stage equipped with lighting, storage and a green room. 
 
The theater is now currently owned and operated by a local family, looking to continue the historic traditions of “Old Arlington” and the “Drafthouse”. We plan to cultivate and improve the Drafthouse experience.

We look forward to serving the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia community with an alternative to the standard comedy club.
