“An average experience”

The Mdina Experience
Reviewed 12 July 2018

Whilst waiting for our viewing, we used the cafe which was a little cramped. The friendly staff recommended the 'fresh' Maltese Lasagne so we ordered. However we could hear/see them microwaving it at the back so not sure how fresh it really was... It was tasted ok though.
We were hoping to get into the 2:30 viewing but a huge booked group turned up so we had to wait for 3:15.
The actual experience was fairly average, i was impressed by the cinema room, nice, big & air conditioned in such a small old building.
However the quality of the film was poor. I mean the actual screen quality was below even SD... it was a bit blurry and for 2018... not very good.
Perhaps it was just our viewing as others said below that quality was good?
Overall the film was ok, fairly interesting but the acting a bit... cheesy
Got this with the combined tickets with the Knights of Malta and a lot of the same history from there is repeated.

The Mdina experience’s cinema will show you the story of the city from the prehistory until the world war. There are a lot of languages that you can choose for the movie which you will listen by the headphones. There is also a nice bar-restaurant where you can eat some specialities.

The Mdina Experience is a spectacular about the story of the city. It's suitable for children and adults and audio guides are available in a lot of different languages. The movie is told with understandable words and that make the vision very pleasant. There is also a coffe shop where you can find some specialities and where you can have a very relaxing break time.
Absolutely recommended.

As part of our visit to the very pleasant city of Mdina my girlfriend and I decided to visit the Mdina Experience.

The ‘experience’ involves being ushered into an air conditioned theatre and asked to put on the pair of headphones that accompanies each seat.

The film then begins with the music and sound effects playing over theatre speakers while the narration plays over the headphones in your language of choice. If you choose the English option you are required to suffer through a bland, generic American accented performance.

The film itself has little to redeem itself. The production values are awful, and judging by their performance, the actors seem to be random people off the street. The narration is sporadic and disjointed and glosses over many important periods of Malta’s history.

Until this film is greatly improved I would recommend giving this experience a miss. There are much better historical experiences elsewhere.
