This place was converted from a church to a comfortable little theater where they show great independent films and more. They have a small little bar in the lobby that serves beer and wine and a few other mixed cocktails and snacks. Its a cool place to check out if they are showing a film that interests you. Beware there... More

Oh to drink wine, munch on popcorn and sit to watch fantastic film.... love this place. The staff is courteous, largely volunteer based and a wonderful experience. Walking distance from Las Olas.

Cinema Paradiso is one of the few places you can see art films in the Broward area. There are 2 locations, one in downtown Fort Lauderdale and one in downtown Hollywood. The staff is friendly and serves great popcorn. The theater is small and cozy. Go see great movies!

Downtown Hollywood now has the second theater with this name in the county... the first is the home of the Ft. Lauderdale Film Festival. Both show art house films, documentaries and live opera and other events. This theater is small--- about 90 seats, but it's comfortable and brand new! I walk here from my house 4 blocks away. There's plenty... More

New and inviting place. Too expensive for what it is if you just walk in. Groupon and tourist discounts are available though, but have to plan in advance. Very limited concessions.

Not your run of the mill movie theatre. Great historical building for a smaller audience showing intelligent movies in downtown Fort Lauderdale. A home to the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival. Ronald & Sheila P

Great spot that I love to visit. The movie choices rock and the low key crowds are a plus compared to the big city cinema plex style today. Worth the visit if there is a flick you like.

Love the ambiance of this theater...it adds so much to the experience of the film you are watching on the screen. No special effects chairs here, folks.

Watched CHEF - been awhile since I've been to the movies and it's more the venue which attracted me. Friendly staff and comfy seats but quite a bit of development happening around the area. Usually, these type of venues are not very clean (a bit on the dive side) but this seem well kept. It was nice to be able... More
