I went to the cinema several times during my stay in Berlin.

My translation would be

Ich ging während meines Aufenthalts in Berlin mehrere Male ins Kino.

Is it correct to pluralize "Mal" here?

Yes. It's correct. In colloquial speech people also say:

Ich bin mehrmals ins Kino gegangen.

Oder weniger hilfsverblastig: Ich ging mehrmals (mehrere Male) ins Kino. –  user unknown Jan 22 at 2:34
    
@userunknown... aber im ganzen Zusammenhang: "Als ich in Berlin war, ging ich mehrere Male ins Kino." Doch eher nicht, oder? –  Emanuel Jan 22 at 10:49
    
Wieso nicht? Tötet die Hilfsverben wo Ihr sie findet! –  user unknown Jan 23 at 12:09
