RFT – Reading’s Independent Cinema


RFT closed for summer break

RFT is currently closed for the summer break and will reopen in September. New membership forms will be available in early September.

RFT -  Reading's only Independent Cinema

Reading Film Theatre was established over 40 years ago as an independent cinema with a policy to show the best films from around the world. RFT receives no grants and hires the largest auditorium from the University on a regular basis, using its own equipment and employing RFT staff, most of whom are volunteers.

Want to Join Our Team of Volunteers?

RFT relies on a team of committed and dedicated volunteers and we are currently looking for people to join our Front of House team in the autumn. Our Front of House volunteers ensure that everything runs smoothly on film nights and undertake cashier and attendant duties. If you are interested in becoming more involved with RFT please email us on rft@reading.ac.uk with the subject heading "Volunteer" and we will send you details.
