Fantastic 20 minute film which engages the audience in a fun and informative manner. Left the cinema with more of an awareness for Rhodes and its history. Would definitely recommend this.

Absolutely awesome experience. First you enter the lobby, where you can read and learn about many things related to Rhodes, and people who built it's history. And than the best comes - 20 and something minutes movie about the island, from it's day 1, until today. You lay down in the chair, and really feel everything, in 9D, like they say. All the people which were with us in the cinema were delighted, as well as we were. P.S. there is a second movie afterwards, which is basically irrelevant, so you can skip it easily (point is that you have to pay additionally for this 2nd movie). So, definitely a place and experience which you shouldn't skip, and the ticket price is quite fair for what they are offering you. Finally, the most important thing: Go to see the movie ON YOUR FIRST DAY of the vacation. By doing that, you will know where to look for historical stuff in the upcoming days, thruout the Old city of Rhodos.

Leared a lot of history of the world. Stunning graphics. You need to wear 3D glasses and headphones which translates the audio into the language of your choice! You really do feel like you're flying at times!
