Christmas Movie Festival at The Arlington Cinema ‘N Drafthouse

Bad Santa

Certainly one of the region’s most entertaining places to see a movie — since there’s table service with food and alcohol — the Arlington Cinema N’ Drafthouse throws a Christmas movie marathon today, Sunday, Dec. 12 — and all for just $8 for the entire day, whether you stay the entire run, or come and go. How The Grinch Stole Christmas and A Charlie Brown Christmas screen a couple times during the day, along with Elf at 1 p.m., A Christmas Story at 3 p.m., Fred Claus at 5:15 p.m., National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation at 7:20 p.m. and Bad Santa (written by the guys who directed I Love You Phillip Morris) at 9:15 p.m. Arlington Cinema N’ Drafthouse, 2903 Columbia Pike, Arlington. Tickets are $8. Call 703-486-2345 or visit
