Cine-Teatro Paraíso de Tomar
arrow left

Where today is the Cine-Teatro Paraíso, was once erected the first space dedicated to the show in the city of Tomar. According to the minutes of the extinct Philarmonica Thomarense Academy, the inauguration of the hall took place in 1843, in the then-called Nabantino Theater. It was here that the locals watched a cinema movie for the first time, in 1901.

At the beginning of the last century, the renovation of the Teatro Nabantino began. The project involved the destruction of the theater and the construction of the future Teatro Paraíso, which took off in 1920 under the responsibility of the architect Deolindo Vieira - who designed an “Italian theater” for the city. The official inauguration was on March 24, 1924.

In the 1940s, the theater was again object of renovation, this time by the architect Camilo Korrodi, who undertook a total transformation of the interiors and added a ballroom and a bar to the facilities, maintaining the exterior façades designed by Deolindo Vieira. Almost half a century later, the Cine-Teatro definitely closed its doors in 1991, and it was bought by the Municipality of Tomar in 1997. The Cine-Teatro Paraíso reopened to the public in 2002 and is currently the main theater in the city, with capacity for 410 people.
