“Loved this theater”
Review of Paradiso Cinema

Paradiso Cinema
Ranked #2 of 6 Fun & Games in Wanaka
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 November 2013

We had a cold, rainy afternoon in Wanaka and decided to see a movie. This theater is quaint and quirky. They also offer a great, affordable menu for dining but we didn't know that and had eaten beforehand. The movie showing was about Sir Edmond Hillary and his quest to conquer Mt. Everest. He is a kiwi and it was a great coincidence we could see this movie in NZ, and in such a cool and quirky little theater. They offer fresh cookies during intermission and Inrecommend the ginger. Delicious.

Great experience - loved the seating and the food and the film was good too. It's so different from visiting a regular cinema. Even if the film had been bad it's would still have been a great experience!

Great local cinema with cushy couches for seating, a cafe to supply food & drink (welcome in the theater), and intermission to give you more opportunity for the latter. Loved it!

I was on a long vacation and needed to slow down a bit so I dropped in to paradiso for a flick. I had a spaghetti dinner, Popcorn and a beer while sitting on a couch watching a local movie. What a great stop. It felt very homey in there, and I'm Canadian : )
