Cinema Paradiso Ibiza was founded by self-confessed movie lovers Joachim and Alexandra Rens. The Dutch-born couple fell in love with the beautiful Spanish island of Ibiza in 2012 and instantly spotted a gap in the market for alfresco screenings. Why not enjoy the sultry summer nights outdoors when you’re surrounded by some of the most stunning landscapes and views in the Mediterranea?
It started as a passion project: setting up their own home cinema so family and friends could enjoy a movie with great food, cold drinks and in the great outdoors, but quickly escalated into Ibiza’s first ever outdoor cinema. Popping up in locations like the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Site, Dalt Vila, and the renowned cliffside restaurant Amante in their debut season meant Cinema Paradiso made a name for themselves with residents, holidaymakers and the international press alike, fast.
The ultimate cinema experience
For Alexandra and Joachim, it’s all about the overall experience. Candles and intimate lighting play as much of an important part as the stars and moon above. Comfortable seating is non-negotiable – the duo went so far as designing their own signature luxury bean beds for their events rather than compromise on quality. Fab food and icy cold drinks are all part of the experience – sweet, salty, savoury or spicy; you want it, they can deliver a menu to suit your tastes.
At the heart of the Cinema Paradiso ethos is Joachim and Alexandra’s desire to share their genuine love of movies with their guests. Whether you attend a public screening at one of their varied locations or opt for a Private Cinema session in your home or villa, the team go above and beyond to ensure you enjoy the ultimate cinema experience. Ibiza’s beautiful backdrops certainly help enhance the experience, but ultimately it’s all about pure escapism.
