The 2 screens are small but comfortable with good projection and sound. Much cheaper than a lot of the bigger... More

And the choice of films is great...somewhere to see something a bit different in a comfortable intimate theatre. The staff are friendly and knowledgable. The booking system and website are... More

We always meet early and have a bottle of belfast blonde. The cinema specialises in world cinema and art house films. Most of the films are not on general release.

There is only a little door ...but when you enter a welcoming , cosy atmosphere , an interesting surrounding envelop you. The film programs and artistic presentations are outstanding, international in they original language and they take you in a world-wide dimension. Queens film Theatre is an hidden gem in the hart of Queens-botanic quarter.

Great comfy seats to enjoy an eclectic mix of films especially great foreign language films as well as well chosen current ones and NTL live productions. A very relaxing way to go to the cinema being able to enjoy a drink in the bar/lounge before or after the... More

One of my favourite places in Belfast. Brilliant selection of international films, friendly staff, and a cosy lounge and bar. A must if you're in Belfast and into independent films!
