Each month we offer Relaxed Screenings for adults on a weekday evening. These screenings, of films old and new, are sold as general admission to allow extra seats and space for audiences, and are intended to offer a more hospitable environment for, but not limited to, those on the autism spectrum and for individuals with different sensory, learning and communication needs. Relaxed Screenings will feature dim lighting, lowered sound, subtitles or open captioning on-screen, and optional audio description. Sennheiser assistive hearing devices are available upon request. Films will start at the listed time, and patrons are welcome to leave and re-enter the auditorium as needed and to visit the ‘Chill Zone’ in the theatre’s lobby.

Getting Here
Paradise is located between the accessible Dufferin St and Ossington St subway stations (three-minute walk from Ossington’s Delaware exit), as well as accessible bus stops on Dufferin St and Dovercourt Rd.

There is a Green P parking lot directly behind the building. There are bike parking spaces on the surrounding blocks.

In 1910, the “one-storey brick theatorium” Bloor Palace is built on the corner of Bloor and Westmoreland.

The venue is renamed The Kitchener in 1918, purportedly in recognition of the WWI British war secretary whose mysterious demise at sea spawned endless conspiracy theories.

Paradise Theatre is born in 1937, built in the Art Deco and Art Moderne styles under the direction of one of Toronto’s earliest practising Jewish architects, Benjamin Brown. The new venue had 643 seats, including a balcony where you could “smoke if you wish.”

In the following decades, Paradise changed hands between the Odeon Theatres chain, and local German (Paradise Kino) and Italian (Nuovo Cinema Paradise) owners.

In 1966, a local family, the Giacominis, purchased the venue and operated it as a beloved neighbourhood Italian filmhouse in 1981. Every three months, Francesco Giacomini brought un-subtitled 35mm film prints back from Italy to share with a local audience.

Paradise is re-named “Eve’s Paradise” in 1986, part of the “Eves and Edens” chain of adult theatres.

The Festival Cinemas chain takes on Paradise in 1990, showing repertory and arthouse fare until 2006.

After 13 years shuttered, Paradise re-opens in 2019!

Today, the 208-seat venue at the heart of Paradise offers the ultimate in comfort and state-of-the-art technology, with 4K digital projection and a retractable screen for seamless transition between film and live performance.
