I loved the movie experience here. Super friendly, reasonable price, cosy and quirky building. Lots of refreshments, freshly baked cookies at the interval and I loved how everyone cleared away their rubbish at the end of the movie. So respectful and community minded :)

You can truly relax and enjoy a movie out when going to Paradiso. Choice of seating - all comfortable, mostly friendly staff, great coffee and of course, the half time biscuits right out of the oven! What's not to like.

Took our grandsons here for a movie during the school holidays. The seats are made up of old couches, old cinema chairs, Airline seats and even an old car. You can order food for interval...(Yes they have Interval!) and go out and collect during the...More
