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

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.
