In line with the latest Government advice on limiting all but essential social contact, and the University’s closure of the Palmer Building this evening, we have had to make the decision to close RFT for the remainder of this season as of today.
This will mean that the following films will not now be screened as advertised:
Tues 17 March: The Marriage Story
Thurs 19 March: Knives Out
Tues 24 March: The Personal History of David Copperfield
Thurs 26 March: Cinema Paradiso.
For those of you who have already bought tickets in advance we will be issuing refunds. We ask you to be patient while we process these.
Please check our website regularly for further updates regarding our summer season (April – June 2020).
We thank you all for your continuing support of RFT and wish you all the best at this time.
RFT (Reading Film Theatre) was established 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.
Reading Film Theatre is working with the Museum of Reading to produce an exhibition to celebrate Fifty Years of bringing independent cinema to Reading. We are looking for anecdotes, memorable films and moments to put in the 'show and tell' display. We can use voice recording or videos. So please dig deep and tell us your stories!!
