Loved our night at the movies in this quirky little cinema. We had pizza before we went in and hot cookies at intermission (yum!) and the couches were so comfortable its just as well the movie was good or we would have fallen asleep!

A cinema with a difference. Comfortable sofa’s, beer and mulled wine on tap. An Interval half way through the movie to get another drink or giant warm home made cookies. You should make time to go to the Paradiso Cinema.

What a quaint, quirky little picture theatre. Great cafe, entertaining staff, brilliant theatre seating. What a hoot! Very entertaining in itself.

Can't go wrong going out to see a movie here! Can't beat beer, fresh cookies and couches! Better make sure you run out for cookies for intermission...they sell out!

Love the layer back atmosphere in this great cinema. Don't miss the homemade cookies and ice-cream at intermission.

As it was raining on our second afternoon in Wanaka, we thought we'd see an NZ comedy at the local cinema. What a fantastic and atmospheric place! The theatre room showing our movie was intimate and cosy, and we loved the fact that the staff...More
