Palmer Building, University of Reading, Whiteknights, Reading RG6 2AH

How to get there & car parks.

AUTUMN 2021: We will be suspending our membership scheme until things look more certain. This will hopefully be for this term only. All films will start at 8pm sharp as we will not be showing any advertisements. Payment will either be by pre-booking online at Ticketsource or by card on the night using our contactless payment terminal.

Note: some films are in the the Minghella Building, which is next door to the Palmer Building.

Reading Film Theatre was established 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, many of whom are volunteers.

The cinema is open to everyone. Being based on a university campus, it screens films only during term time. It aims to screen at least one foreign language film (subtitled in English) each week, the rest of the programme being a mix of both mainstream and independent cinema, primarily from the UK and North America.

Reading Film Theatre will close at the end of this Autumn 2021 season. For more information see: readingfilmtheatre.co.uk.
