The Alhambra867 viewsAnyone remember the film?
The Alhambra Cinema was a large and imposing cinema on the seafront at Sliema. The cinema occupied the lower two floors of a large apartment block (surviving), but the foyer and auditorium were gutted and now form the Zara Boutique - a large clothes store.
