Empire Stadium Gzira4374 viewsLater known as The Stadium. Used mostly for football matches (and greyhound racing) and hosted the home matches of the Maltese national football team and also hosted the final of the Maltese Cup. The stadium was able to hold 30,000 spectators and originally opened in 1922. It was notorious for its sandy pitch. It hosted its final game in 1981, being replaced by the modern Ta' Qali Stadium.2 commentsPrefect

The Alhambra734 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.
