This is a special little place we love to visit from time to time with friends. It’s the destination of all those who want to have a good time in a relaxed environment, and enjoy movies they will not see elsewhere.
Bíó Paradís is the first and only art house cinema in Iceland. They show interesting films from all over the world, as well as many Icelandic films and documentaries. Their international line-up consists mostly of European, Ice-landic and U.S. independent films with occasional retro-spectives of classic films and educational film programmes for children.
The cinema features a café/bar that provides beverages such as coffee and beer, popcorn and candy. We think this is a great little place to catch an arthouse film, or just to sit down and relax, listen to vinyl records and enjoy a good conversation. Also, the popcorn is DELICIOUS – yes, that’s a very important factor to any cinema experience, in my opinion.
Their lounges are cosy and ideal for a drink or two before the movie starts.

Old posters cover the wall like a mural.
Don’t miss out on the popcorn. Seriously so good.
