Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Nice cinema, good price for some popcorn and drink. There’s a big variety in movies. I liked that the movies are in the original language (with subtitles)

    Maldá is a classical cinema located near the Ramblas, in the center of Barcelona. Here, you can see some interesting movies that are not found in more commercial cinemas. Moreover, with a single ticket you can see all the movies of the day, so it can be quite cheap. All in all, it is a sure choice for cinema lovers.

    It is a cinema complex inside the Arenas Shopping Center, which was an old bullring. A great option to watch movies.

    This is our go-to movie theater in Barcelona. Located near the Vila Olímpica, 15 screens with a good air conditioner. Many of the movies are VO (voice original) with Castilian subtitles. The prices are very reasonable (as far as prices go for first-run movies), and the snack bar has pretty standard prices and offerings. The seats in many of the salons leave some to be desired... for a 90-120 minute movie, they're tolerable. But for anything longer, I find myself squirming to try to get comfortable. Your best bet is to avoid the seats in the center, and select instead the ones toward the periphery, that are not as "broken in."

    Great cinema in the center of Barcelona. Now the films are in original version. Fantastic popcorns. Comfortable seats and big screens.

    I ate with my friends here and I have to say that the place is really nice with polite service but,
    I didn’t like the chairs, they were very uncomfortable, looked like those of the school of many years ago and specially the food.
    I’ve order the most expensive plate that they had. The Octopussy, 15€ for a small plate without flavour.
    Was the same for my friends with the others meals.
    I repeat, really nice place but the food is expensive and nothing special.

    An old style cinema with good sound and seats. The experience was a little like stepping back in time, in a beautiful theatre which is not very expensive.

    I went to the Halloween night session, the first film being Critters (cheesy but very funny and actually really good to see on the big screen). However, I was disappointed by the choice of secret film. Rather than a good old classic scary ´horror´film like Nightmare on Elm St, Halloween etc, it was the very naff and not at all scary B movie The Toxic Avenger.I´d never seen it before so I gave it a chance. I left after 30 minutes as did quite a few other people who I am assuming were, like me, expecting a typical jump out of your skin horror film for the night that was in it.

    I will definitely go back to Phenomena. The lineup is usually really good, the cinema is a classic institution,and it is favorably priced, but I will be sure to know what I am going to see next time to avoid disappointment.
