Such a nice place! I would highly recommend this cinema experience with it's delicious fresh cookies in the middle of the film. And we sat in a morris traveller! So much fun!

Coolest place to watch a film. Decorated very nicely. Offers kickass hot cookies during intermission. Kick back, relax, have a beer/wine woth cookies and popcorn and sit in either a couch or a chair and watch a film in that cozy place

The retro atmosphere and the casual seating (we sat in a 3 person sofa) was enjoyable as was the food and drinks on offer. Parking is onsite - very good since parking in downtown Wanaka takes some planning.

Loved the uniqueness of this cinema and how comfortable it was. We enjoyed relaxing on a sofa with a cookie and a drink while watching a film. The picture and sound quality was excellent. I couldn't fault it.

Paradiso is a must visit when you are in Wanaka. It's a quirky wee cinema that sell the best ever homemade cookies at half-time. Staff are fantastic and friendly. Don't miss this awesome experience :)

We wouldn't normally think about going to a cinema whilst on holiday but, after touring round for a couple of weeks, we were looking for something different and came across this on Trip Advisor. What a fantastic place! So unusual and quirky. We were at...More

Cinema like i have never experienced before. First when you enter you will smell the fresh homemade cookies baking and the movie posters covering every inch of wall. The tickets for adults were $15 which is cheaper than most cinemas, but make sure you buy...More
