The program errs on the commercial side, but otherwise there's nothing conventional about this cinema-cum-theater-cum-restaurant. Housed in an imposing '30s Art Deco building, the Arlington wears its heritage on its sleeve, proudly proclaiming its historic tradition of multi-disciplinary entertainment. It's worth the trip just for the novelty of being served dinner in your cinema seat. But don't come here looking for the latest releases – this is a strictly second-run cinema (with ticket prices to match, including bargain $2 admissions on Monday and Tuesday).
