“Davie is a wonderful community and we are very eager to bring the finest and most distinctive movie-going experience to its residents. Paragon Ridge will become the go-to theater in the marketplace not only for Davie, but also for the communities of Plantation, Sunrise, Cooper City, Weston, Pembroke Pines, and Southwest Ranches, given the theater’s easy access off Route 595 and Pine Island. Admission and food pricing will be competitive,” stated Michael Whalen, CEO of Paragon Theaters.  The company has a successful track record of turning older theaters into top of the line, upscale movie-going venues complete with expanded dining experiences.

The theater chain is known for creating strategic partnerships in the community, and offering affordable field trips and a premier fundraiser program. A Free Kids Summer Movies Series is scheduled for families this summer on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings at 10 am.  More details are available at The Paragon Theaters Diamond Rewards loyalty program allows loyal guests to earn points towards free tickets and concession (and every member gets a free ticket on their birthday). These programs, along with their fantastic amenities and superior guest service, make Paragon Theaters the ultimate movie going destination.
