Cinema Paradiso

Map & Directions 503 SE Sixth St.
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301


New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

Cinema Paradiso started out in 1905 as a church, not a movie palace, and a warren of little-box theaters was never in the cards. Instead, Cinema Paradiso offers lots of plush velvet seats, one big screen, and movies galore, from Fort Lauderdale Film Festival entries to programs for kids. Plus, they sell beer at the refreshment stand. And popcorn that tastes good. Tragically, Cinema Paradiso is a one-of-a-kind joint in South Florida.

    Home of the annual Ft Lauderdale International Film Festival, this former church turned theater offers great cinema. Get showtimes using "read more" link below or here: http://goo.gl/vTMnQ

    There's free parking, cool movies, but the majority of its moviegoers are quite old and bitchy.

    This theater was once a church. Great place to check out a foreign or indie film.

    Not your ordinary movie theater; sit-back and enjoy films from around the world with a cocktail from their full bar.

    One of the coolest Theatre's ever! They play lots of Live Action Japanese and Anime Movies that are national premieres And the staff is really awesome and the parking is free when u see a show there.
