RFT – Reading’s Independent Cinema

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.

Welcome to the RFT Summer Season

RFT returns after the Easter break with an exciting selection of films, including some of this year's Oscar winners including this year's best film: Moonlight, best foreign film: The Salesman and multi-oscar winner: Hacksaw Ridge. Full details of the new programme are shown on the Films & Events page and tickets are available to purchase online from TicketSource. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
