Paradiso Cinema shouldn't be missed when in Wanaka. The cinema is small - about 85 seats, so make sure you show up about 20-30 minutes before your movie starts. The seats are not your regular movie theatre seats - they are couches, love seats, big comfy lazyboys or even car seats! It's like sitting in your own living room with an enormous screen!
It's possible to order whole meals to eat while watching the movie, although, there are no tables, so keep this in mind. The cinema is licensed, so one can order alcohol as well. There is a half-time intermission when you get a 15 minute break to have some freshly baked hot cookies! This was one of the most interesting movie experiences I've had, and a nice thing to do on a rainy day or just to rest from all the outdoorsy activities in Wanaka.
