Cinemas in Malta

There are different types of cinemas in Malta. You have the standard cinemas that show movies just like any other European cinemas. Then there is a cinema which is more oriented towards independent and historical films, located in Valletta.

Almost all movies are shown in English, mostly without subtitles, which could present a difficulty if you don’t have a strong command of English.

Most cinemas in Malta operate with an intermission in the middle of the movie, giving you time to go and pick up a cold drink or a snack.
