RFT – Reading’s Independent Cinema

Good News from RFT!

We are planning to reopen RFT on 23rd September for our autumn season. In line with current recommendations from government and our hosts, the University of Reading, we will be implementing measures for your safety and comfort. In particular:

  • All films start at 8pm and with NO ADS so get there in good time.
  • There is plenty of parking and it is FREE!
  • We are now cashless so either order your tickets online at Ticketsource or bring a card and use our contactless card readers.
  • Please wear a mask while moving around but feel free to remove when you are seated.
  • We are limiting our audience to 104 maximum but with a capacity of over 400, the theatre has plenty of room to spread out.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available in the foyer.
  • Cushions will not be available but feel free to bring your own if you prefer.

In the meantime if you have any comments or suggestions about RFT we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us.

We are really looking forward to seeing our wonderful audience again for the best in world independent cinema with state-of-the-art Digital projection and fantastic Dolby sound system. So no more streaming on tablets or lap-tops in order to see the world's best films! We have a great programme of films for this term. If you want to print out the program click here.

Featuring a trio of powerhouse performances from Barbara Sukowa (Hannah Arendt), Léa Drucker (Custody) and Martine Chevallier (of the Comédie Française), Filippo Meneghetti’s ‘Two of Us’ is an unbridled celebration of a love that knows no bounds -and the unshakeable fervour of the female spirit.
