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.
