One of the top Santa Barbara attractions and a gem of the golden era of ornate movie theaters, the Arlington opened in 1931. The interior is stunning—giving the illusion of sitting in a Spanish colonial plaza under a starry night sky. Today it’s home to movies (including the Santa Barbara Film Festival), concerts, and performances. Recently the schedule included everything from an Elvis Costello concert to a David Sedaris reading to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. That definitely qualifies as something for everyone.
