The Reading Film Theatre is Reading’s only independent film cinema, showing a range of art-house, foreign language and independent films as well as the occasional mainstream blockbuster. It shows films on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at The Palmer building on the Whiteknights campus, with the new season of films starting in September. You can keep you up to date with the films which are coming soon and with events that will be scheduled as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations on the RTF website.

The RFT began as a joint project between the British Film Institute and the University of Reading. It is now a registered charity and operates with the help of around fifty volunteers who sit on the management committee, manage the marketing, publicity and fundraising as well as operating the box office and act as ushers at screenings. The patron is film director Peter Strickland, who was a volunteer at RFT during while student at the University. In the words of RTF president Sir Kenneth Branagh:

Independent cinema is vital to the cultural life of the town and I am pleased to be President of the cinema, which provides opportunities for people to see films that otherwise would not be shown in Reading”.
