Reading Film Theatre

RFT is an independent cinema, showcasing the best films from around the world. In 2020 we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary. 

Our programme includes a mix of mainstream and independent cinema as well as foreign language films (subtitled in English). We screen beautifully made films which raise important and challenging issues, and we host film events with directors and filmmakers.

We are proud of our top quality digital projection, large screen and state-of-the art Dolby surround sound, providing a great immersive cinematic experience. Open to everyone, our 300 seated auditorium is located in the Palmer building, which we hire from the University of Reading.

If you love film and want to watch the best in world cinema, RFT is the place to be.
