Drama, Comedy Romance – 2 hours

Review by Louise Keller:
The humour is dark and the laughs abundant in this fresh and funny romantic comedy that tackles love, dreams and arranged marriages. Drawing from real life, actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani and screenwriter Emily Gordon have penned an original and hilarious screenplay, filled with bittersweet truths and a subversive viewpoint. The result is a delicious, highly entertaining, laugh out loud film that explores emotions and behaviour and makes us scratch our heads at the complexity of the human condition. ….

Cinema Paradiso is looking for more volunteers to take on some very exciting projects in the next few years. Cinema Paradiso has been approached by the Queensland Touring Film Festival and also by Topology. They would bring their Short Film Festival plus many workshops to Mission Beach. It would be so fantastic to provide something so special to this community. If you are interested please contact us.

About Us

The club is part of the Federation of Queensland Film Societies and operates under the umbrella of the Mission Beach Community Arts Centre Inc. which is a not-for-profit organisation. Cinema Paradiso is run by volunteers.

Once a month we will bring the cinema to Mission Beach, offering a wide range of films for all tastes, from Hollywood to Bollywood, from mainstream to art house. We have themed months throughout the year.

Films are shown on Saturday evenings at the C4 Theatrette in North Mission Beach next to the yellow-i-logo. Screening starts at 7 pm, socialising (doors open) from 6.30 pm. We often get together at the Village Green for an after-movie chat.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions. Please let us know what you would like to see on the big screen!

Our committee members are:

Kerry Green  — President & Movie Librarian
Gitta Yelds — Treasurer & Advertising (Sound of Music Meets the Beach)
Gemma Flynn — Secretary & Facebook



We are a not-for-profit organisation and operate by membership only. If you wish to see our films, please become a member. Annual, quarterly and short-term memberships are available in advance or at the door on screening nights. Visitors are welcome and can join us for any screening with a small donation to Cinema Paradiso.
