Enjoy watching films? Ever considered becoming an RFT volunteer?

We are looking for more people to join our team of volunteers helping out on film nights starting in September. If you are interested please contact rft@reading.ac.uk, by Friday 10th August, with the word "Volunteer" in the subject heading. 

RFT -  Reading's only Independent Cinema

RFT (Reading Film Theatre) was established nearly 50 years ago as an independent cinema bringing the very best in world films to you. Our programme includes the latest blockbusters as well as a wide range of smaller budget and foreign language films. We also screen beautifully made films which raise important and challenging issues you won’t find on the multiplex circuit.

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

Now closed for Summer Holidays

We are currently closed for the summer but will be re-opening with our new season of the best in world cinema in September. We will be announcing the film schedule in late August. In the meantime enjoy a great summer and see you in September!

Membership Fees

We will be announcing our new 2018-19 membership scheme in late August. Please come back then to renew or take out RFT membership.
