Summer Season at RFT

Our new season starts on Tuesday 29th April with the Coen brothers’ latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis. For anyone who is not yet a member of RFT, we are offering a special half price deal on that evening: membership for the remainder of this season will be only £6! This means that once you have seen just 3 films you will have earned back your membership subscription. RFT members are also entitled to reserve tickets and receive our weekly e-newsletter. Our latest programme is full of the usual great selection of foreign language, Oscar winning and newly released films as well as the latest live streamed productions from the National Theatre.  As usual we have a few films with introductory talks by University staff and on Wednesday 11th June we have a special showing of BAFTA shorts and students’ films from the University’s Film, Theatre and TV department.
