The Paradiso Theatre is the first of Malco’s contemporary Memphis cinemas to have an ornate building. It is the premier first-run cinema in the area with large screen auditoriums and many special event showings such as live performances of the Metropolitan Opera during the season. All of Malco’s cinemas have converted to digital projection.
The Paradiso’s huge lobby is beautifully decorated and patrons are surrounded with coming attraction displays both standing and on screen. The concession serves from a large menu. It has 14 screens and is situated in a busy commercial area bordered by Poplar Avenue and Mendenhall.
The center fountain, skylight and surrounding balconies give the impression of a Spanish courtyard, once again remembering the grand foyers of past years. The cinema contains an arcade, coffee bar, party room and a second concession for the auditoriums far from the lobby. It is the primary 3-D cinema in the area.
