In spite of current use as porno cinema, this is probably the old of Lisbon’s movie theatres still in use. Cine-Paraíso is in a small base-room of an old building of Chiado’s area, and it still have small beautiful details such as the wooden chairs, etc.

During last years, several people have been tried to change the terms of its programme, with independent cinema, various initiatives, etc. Unfortunately, all that is frustation, and every time one of those initiatives falls apart, porno cinema returns… til when?

you walk into an upper cafe lobby area buy a ticket and go down stairs where you walk into the balcony level of a big 1950’s style auditorium. there is little decoration, the balcony seats approx 100 and overlooks the stalls area.
the seats are vinyl or leather (easy to wipe down) its a shame its mostly used for porn as it has a huge screen and is a well preserved auditorium
