When I lived in Paris, I used to go the cinema every day.
Or "When I lived in Paris, I would go to the cinema every day".
You could also say:
"I used to/would go to the cinema every day when I lived in Paris".

I don't think there is anything wrong with saying:

When I lived in Paris, I went to the cinema every day (although I'd be more likely to write 'when I was living in Paris, I went to the cinema every day' - past continuous punctuated by past events)

When I lived in Paris, I would go to the cinema every day

When I lived in Paris, I used to go to the cinema every day
