“Great art house cinema”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

This is a great little art house cinema in town Lauderdale with free enclosed parking across the street. The folks that run it are always very cool (if they can only get their showings updated on Flixster this place would be perfect)

“a unique venue with a quirky feel”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

or a quirky venue with a unique feel, and a great selection of films, film festivals and events. A decommissioned church with wine and beer; the pews are gone, and there are really comfortable easy chair seats with lots of room and no blocked views.

“Small theatre with big style”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

There's only a few places in South Florida where you can go to an independent theatre to catch something other than the garbage that Hollywood keeps pumping out and that is Cinema Paradiso. Not only do they have a wide array of films coming out, but the seating is incredible comfortable and wide, you can order a beer at the concession stand. I'm rating one particular time I went there and C.P. had an event in conjunction with Radioactive Records and thus had food trucks outside! So delicious vegan food plus great, comfortable seats, a great local band (Beach Day) playing outside. What a perfect damn night. Even if I was to rate other times besides this that I'd been here, I'd mark it high as the place is so inviting and comfortable.

“Cosy, comfortable movie house”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We saw the Oscar nominated animation shorts and it was delightful. They offer beverages, beer and wine etc. A friendly introduction and the seats are as comfortable as it gets!

“Paradise At The Paradiso”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

I am a member of the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival, and this is their headquarters. However, I seldom attend the movies they show here. I just went last week for the first time in two years. They show wonderful movies here...many independent films. Members get a discounted admission, but anyone is welcome. The seats here are probably the most comfortable movie theater seats that I have ever sat in. Check this place out. We will see you at the movies!!! Cut!
