The Arlington Entertainment Center was opened by Neigborhood Theatres on August 15, 1940 with Cary Grant in “My Favourite Wife”. Designed by Richmond, VA architect Fred A. Bishop, it had a capacity for 616 seats. It featured a large 24 lane bowling alley on the second & third floors. It was later renamed Arlington Theater. The last operating movie palace in Arlington, in 1985 the theater was converted to a dine-in movie theater, serving food and beer with every screening.
The building is of note because it once housed the headquarters of The American Nazi Party.
