Cinema Paradiso in 4k restoration, arrives in selected cinemas from 23rd October courtesy of Arrow Academy.


The ultimate love letter to the big screen is set to return to cinemas during these tumultuous times, as the irresistible and much-loved celebration of ‘youth, friendship, and the everlasting magic of movies’, presented in a stunning 4k restoration, arrives in selected cinemas from 23rd October courtesy of Arrow Academy.

CINEMA PARADISO is set in a cinema, and should be seen in one, and what better way to support your local big screen this month than by watching this lovingly restored classic – over two-and-a-half hours of glorious, and much-needed, escapism, that “wraps you in a tender embrace and refuses to let go” (Empire Magazine).

A winner of awards across the world including the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, and 5 BAFTAs, Giuseppe Tornatore’s loving homage to cinema is a miracle of a movie, that The Guardian describes as “a real experience and a classic”.

Touching, funny, moving, and completely involving, the viewer is whisked away on a bittersweet journey reflecting on youth, love, and regret – and the all-consuming fascination of film. Philippe Noiret (Round Midnight) won a BAFTA for his marvellous performance as the projectionist, while Salvatore Cascio is utterly charming as the young boy who is obsessed with the silver screen. The extraordinarily life-affirming finale, featuring the montage of famous cinematic kisses, is one of cinema’s most beguiling and transcendent moments.Full list of confirmed screenings:
