This theater will show films that you cannot see elsewhere. the seats are the best in the city. they do premieres and other special events. If you are getting ready for the Oscars, they do great short parties and run all day long showings of animated to foreign films. They also run Rocky Horror Picture Show! great place for friends...

Great movie selections. Small refreshment stand serves snacks and beer. Seats are comfortable and arranged on an incline for good views.

The two employees (and the cat!) were nice and made me feel welcome. I would recommend this place anytime for a date or a family evening.

Smack in the middle of the restaurant zone. Large, comfortable theater. The movies selected are often off-beat and always worth seeing. Enjoyed recent Fort Lauderdale Film Festival.

Non-commercial movies, is the opportunity to learn, in 80 min or so, about different cultures, real stories, a piece of history, a documentary, someone's struggles, and the list goes on. It is also, the chance of many new filmmakers to show their creations and for the public to support the arts. I really enjoy going to both, the location in... More

Theater that feels like the days of yore. This spot very often has movies that are not playing anywhere else.

A quaint theater showing choice "Indy" flicks and putting on a huge Film Festival every fall. Membership gives you so many benefits like free films, parties and a chance to discuss the film with other film lovers.

A group of Pan American flight attendants celebrated their organization, World Wings International by attending a screening of "A Powerful Noise." Cinema Paradiso makes itself available to the community for events such as this. It is a lovely, renovated theater with lots of charm and intimacy. I recommend going there again and again. The Fort Lauderdale Film Festival is imminent... More
