Cafe Cinema Paradiso is a place where you can relax & drink a coffee or beer, eat really great tortilla or panini and/or watch a nice film. As far as films are concerned, you can watch them every day – all for free. The film program changes on a weekly basis, but what’s normally played there are independent niche films from all over the world.
But Cafe Cinema Paradiso is not only a cinema… this is something more. Apart from cosy, intimate cinema, this is also a nice and peaceful cafe, where you can encounter a spontaneous party or watch a football match (especially Copa America).
My first time at this place was at a Brazilian party organized by the owner of this place. I didn’t know anyone, but that didn’t bother me, because the atmosphere was very friendly. The owner of this place, Miguel, who is Mexican and has lived in Krakow for 10 years, always dreamed of opening a place like this. His dream finally came true last year, when he opened a cafe bar, located in the old building of sports club Korona, in Old Podgórze.
This place is definitely worth visiting and whenever I’m walking around in this area, I drop in. For a coffee, beer, or to watch a film… depending on my mood. I know that there is always something going on.
