From the outside, Cinema Paradiso looks more like a church than a movie theater. But inside, there is no mistaking that the auditorium crowded with 209 plush, royal blue velvet seats—each imported from Paris—is a luxurious haven for movie-goers. The downtown Fort Lauderdale theater screens art-house independent films from all over the world and is also home to the 30th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. With the ability to project 35mm, DCP, and High-Def Surround, the venue's possibilities are many. They offer three full service bars and concession fare such as popcorn to help guests calm their jitters during the scary parts or satiate cravings so that no growling bellies drown out tenderly whispered love scenes.
