Went on a Thursday night and the two of us paid only 8 euros between us. A similar night out back home would be closer to 25 euros. Toilets were a bit rubbish though and in need of repair.

Empire cinema is a great little cinema in the Bugibba area. I always go here to watch the latest films for several reasons. I live in the area, entrance fees are cheaper than the main cinema in St. Julians, food and drinks at Empire are certainly cheaper, you don't end up facing scores of people running around you like crazy...

Liked the venue, close to hotel, useful when waiting for transfers. Hotel film times didn't coincide with venue, then cashier told me the incorrect time as I paid, walked up to screening and it had already been on 10mins?!! Hate missing the start of the film. Otherwise, very friendly.

I like to go and watch a movie on Thursdays since the 2D movie are always on special offer for just 4€. Prices all week round are also slightly cheaper than other cinemas in Malta. Parking is not a problem and the atmosphere of the cinema is really relaxing and it's never too crowded which I like.

Great cinema and very comfortable for sitting and watching a movie. Was a bit strange to have an interval in the middle of the movie but this added to the experience....

Not being of the wild partying type my wife and I settled for 3 nights at the pictures during our recent stay in the Bugibba area of Malta. The Empire Cinema has a very comfortable auditorium and the 3 films which we saw although very different were excellent. The only thing which puzzled us was that on each occasion mid... More
