Queens Film Theatre

Great place to watch films, small friendly and a lovely setting. Nice bar area to sit and have a coffee or drink before a film.

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. If the film is on demand you can book online, its quite easy to do, also keep track of what's on at the website or get more details in the... More

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.

This has become our favourite cinema and we are now members too. 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!

Brilliant independent cinema, also home to the Brian Friel Theatre. Have been to many films and a few plays in this place (most recently the brilliant play ~ Those You Pass On The Street ~ by Kabosh Theatre). A lovely, relaxed place which also hosts visual arts exhibitions and has a bar serving a full range of wines, beers, drinks... More

From time to time QFT show the odd howler, like the outdated and unpopular "Wake in Fright", but overall they get it right. Nipping into see "It's a Wonderful Life" every Christmas, as well as the big releases before they hit the mainstream makes it special. The major disappointment after the major refurb a while back was, they didn't improve... More

Everyone in Belfast loves the QFT. Almost hard to spot in an elegant terrace just beside Queens University and a universe away from modern multiplex banality. World cinema, nice décor, a bar and comfy seats,
