According to Maslow's hierarchy of needs, humans cannot attain self-actualization without first tending to such basic physiological needs as water, sleep, and burgers. Achieve overall fulfillment with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of pub fare at the Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse's main theater or the Old Arlington Grill.
Converted from a historic 1930s theater, Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse combines movies, comedy, and fresh pub fare all under one art-deco roof. For an additional admission fee, customers can stifle guffaws during live stand-up shows with bites from the main theater's menu, which showcases a lineup of specialty pizzas, homemade crab-cake sandwiches ($12.99) and a John Wayne bacon, cheddar, and barbecue burger ($9.75). While comedians featured on The Tonight Show, David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, and SNL locate funny bones, servers will locate your tables, schlepping platters full of veggie-burger wraps ($9.75).
The Old Arlington Grill sits humbly in front of the Arlington Cinema, cooking up a hearty, down-home menu of eats, in addition to hosting a full-service bar. Mac 'n' cheese bites served with ranch ($7.99) prep bellies for heaping piles of Rockfish 'n' chips ($12.99) or barbecue ribs ($13.95). Cool mouth feelers and thoughts of magma with a draft beer ($3.75–$5.25) or one of Old Arlington Grill's signature martinis ($7.95).
