Gift Aid

Thank you to all of you who signed the gift aid section on the RFT membership form. We’re delighted to tell you that we’ve received £598 from HMRC as a result, which helps towards our running costs. Please remember to sign the gift aid section if you have not yet done so and you are a UK tax payer and continue to support Reading’s only independent cinema. We wish you all a good summer break and hope to have further details of our autumn season within the next few weeks.

Volunteers Needed!

Our summer season has started well with some great films. Looking ahead to June, we will be holding a special screening event of the BAFTA Shorts combined with films made by students from the University’s Film, Theatre and Television department (Wednesday June 11th). Other films to look out for are the Swedish film We Are the Best (Tuesday June 10th), the Singaporean film Ilo Ilo (Tuesday June 17th) and the live streamed A Small Family Business by Alan Ayckbourn (Thursday June 12th ). At RFT we rely almost entirely on a dedicated team of volunteers to work as cashiers and attendants. Some of these are students who will be leaving us at the end of term and we are looking for new volunteers to join the Front of House team. If you would be interested in joining please email us at: with the words Front of House in the subject line. Volunteers need to be available to do 5 or 6 duties each term and training is provided.
