RFT – Reading’s Independent Cinema

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.
