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.

Twice 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 theme 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
Patricia Voltz — Advertising & Memberships

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.
