“A wonderful afternoon of ballet at Cinema Paradiso”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

It is well worth frequently checking Cinema Paradiso's website (fliff.com) for their exciting and often unique offerings of all types. This past Sunday we spent a lovely afternoon first watching the Bolshoi's Moscow production of the ballet "Raymonda" and then a wonderful ballet gran prix competition documentary called "First Position". Both films were breathtaking and not to be missed by ballet and dance fans.
This hidden gem of a theater is located in a landmark former church just behind the Ft. Lauderdale courthouse. Parking in the courthouse garage across the street is free after 6 pm as is on street meter parking. There are always exciting events going on for you to discover.

“Unique Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

Friendly place, nice seating, good picture and sound quality. This place is a little hard to find because it is on the other side of the River Walk.

“Nothing like it around...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

Takes its name from the movie, and is actually in a converted church just south of the River. Great art films and lots of "indies" with special events all the time.

“Wonderful Moviehouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

Discovered this theater while looking for a rainy day retreat, and we were so pleasantly surprised by the facility (former church!) and the comfortable seating and friendly staff. They even sell wine! Great place to enjoy an indie film.
