Came here for a few short films during the film festival. Great little film theatre, comfortable seating.

If you are tired of watching commercial movies, this is the place for you. It always offers something different. A lot of foreign films in VO and thematic cycles. Theatres are small but cosy and the bar is quite stylish.

This is a great place to go to check out all the worthwhile films out at the moment! Comfy seats and screenings start on time, no over-saturation of ads before the show!

I went to see 'Its a Wonder Life' with my partner. QFT has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. After the film there was a spontaneous applause. It was a special romantic night out

small yet perfect. The smaller rooms make it more personal especially when watching an alternative film. There is a bar that you can buy drinks from and take in with you. FAr superior to any other cinema

From the outside this is a small terrace house, but once inside the front door, it opens into a spacious bar area which in turn leads to two screen theatres with very comfortable seats. The choice of films is eclectic. From bang up to date blockbusters currently showing in the main chains to low budget art house films. Really, something... More

QFT is fantastic for seeing the movies you want to see, and doing so in the Queen's quarter of Belfast, which is a lovely area, buzzing with (not just student) life, great restaurants, and the beautiful QUB Lanyon building of course.

I just love The QFT, it's for 'grown-ups'. Unusual and interesting movies - just wish some would play a little longer - have a tipple before going into the movie theatre. Best of all - no annoying, smelly, loud brats with popcorn.

A brilliant venue. Just what a cinema should be...it has character and atmosphere & feels welcoming which beats the sanitised, soul-less multiplexes. Staff are genuinely interested in talking to you and people like to linger & chat about the films...great place to visit regularly. A proper cinema experience!

I have always loved this little gem of a cinema, tucked away down an entry in Belfast. Its great that they have a coffee shop now as it adds to the occasion. Give it a go!
