RFT Re-opening Update

After several months of being closed due to the lockdown, we had been planning to re-open RFT for our autumn season.

Unfortunately, we have been advised by the University of Reading that they will be unable to host us in the Autumn Term as they have decided to reduce the amount of non-core activities on campus. This decision will be reviewed for 2021.

As you can imagine this is very disappointing for all of us at RFT as well as our friends and supporters. We are greatly missing the big screen experience and the opportunity to celebrate our 50th year with you. 

We are hopeful that the University will allow us to re-open in Spring 2021.

In the meantime all is not lost, we are bringing you world cinema through streaming platforms. So please do continue to support us by:

  • Watching the films available for streaming which we are advertising via our website and newsletter
  • Buying a Reading Community Lottery ticket in support of RFT
  • Telling your friends and family about us.

Thank you for your continued patience and support – we will be back!
