Local filmmaker and video producer, Dawn Dubriel and partner J. Vinazza – also a local filmmaker and animator, created Auteur Explosion on December 12, 2008. At midnight, 12/12, Jon proposed to Dawn and one year later on 12/12/noon, they were married on the same steps of the Church turned Cinema - a fine spot for a true partnership.

Cinema Paradiso is conveniently located in downtown Fort Lauderdale. It’s hip & trendy, yet offers an old-world charm suiting the senses of the art community. The charming 200+ seat theatre with outside patio also has the capacity to contain the constant influx of new and local talent at the monthly Auteur Explosion. Plus, it offers concessions, a full bar, and the best popcorn in town!
