These family-friendly movies are all about love, friendship, and adventure and are the perfect way to bring in the new year and spend time with your loved ones. These classic movies transcend time and connect multiple generations of family members, continuing the history and impact of the Arlington Music Hall.
The Arlington Music Hall, known previously as the Arlington Theatre, first opened in 1950 with a showing of the feature film “Sea Biscuit” starring Shirley Temple. The movie was followed by a memorable on stage performance by local band The Flying Ranch Hands who later became known as The Light Crust Dough Boys. The theater would continue to operate as a movie theater for many years, showing movies such as the critically acclaimed “Adventures of Robinson Crusoe,” until it was purchased in 1994 by the legendary Johnny High.
High soon relocated his “Johnny High’s Country Music Revue,” a weekly variety show highlighting local artists, to the Music Hall, opening the door for many popular artists including Blake Shelton, LeAnn Rimes, Box Car Willie, Gary Morris, and many more. The venue was then sold to Burk Collins, a local developer and country music fan who continued the weekly shows while also hosting musical legends such as Willie Nelson and Loretta Lynn.
Today, the Arlington Music Hall continues to host a wide variety of artists, bands, and performers, from Kacey Musgraves to Arlington’s very own orchestra, Symphony Arlington, to homegrown talent such as Maren Morris. Now, we are proud to announce the “Downtown Arlington Winter Movie Series” as part of the Arlington Music Hall’s ongoing season!
