Cinema Drafthouse Saves the Day For Soccer Club

News of the recent neighborhood fracas over rap music being played at the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse (2903 Columbia Pike) didn’t sit well with David Goodwin, Outreach Director of the Screaming Eagles soccer club.

The Arlington Brigade of the Screaming Eagles will be hosting a charity event at the Drafthouse Saturday night, and Goodwin wanted to let us know how accommodating  the theater was to his organization.

I was saddened to see the story the other day of a customer having an issue with the Drafthouse and their staff.

Here is a quick one that shows how customer-friendly the folks over there are:

The Arlington Brigade of the Screaming Eagles, a non-profit soccer club, were in a bind on where to show an international match this Saturday night (due to the delay by the USSF in releasing their TV deal for the event). Yet, the staff of the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse were extremely helpful in allowing us to take over one of their busiest nights of the week for a fundraiser for two soccer charities – and the U.S. Soccer Foundation.

As a result we hope to pack the place with soccer fans decked out in red, white and blue on Saturday night at 10pm for the USA vs. Chile match and raise funds to help create safe places for children to play both at home and abroad.
