Really love going to see films here. The chairs are so comfortable! There's a lovely little bar to wait in before going in to see the film. It's such a treat to go see a film here.

Great tour guide but the group was too large for getting the most out of it. They need to cap size and get anothr guide out.

This place has been renovated since I was a child. It now has comfy seats and feels like a "proper" cinema. There's a winebar in the foyer that serves tea and coffee as well. It shows independant films and non English language films, so is the most likely place to check out if the film your interested in doesn't hit... More

I like the themed nights they do, and events they hold, however I wouldn't normally choose this cinema as somewhere I would go, notably as they only show movies I'm interested in infrequently, and I find the seats quite uncomfortable, however I do like the ambiance of the cinema theatre.

Nice small cosy art house cinema. Makes a nice change from the bog standard 21st century megaplex. Only downside is the limited selection of confectionary.

A great little cinema for enjoying the classics from old black and white movies to live streaming from the stages of some of the most revered theatres in the UK. Unique and charming.

I love to go to QFT for many reasons and my friend I and go to the cinema probably once a week. I love the fact that the other patrons are also committed cinema goers and therefore the whole experience is very enjoyable. It is also so convenient for me as I only live 10 minutes away and as I...

I've been here numerous times, and this to me is probably the best cinema experience in Belfast. Showing a lot of world cinema, older classics, and independent movies. What I really like about this place the best is that the people that go to this cinema know exactly why they are here, every one of them. Not like in a... More

I've been going to QFT since I was a student, when the cinemas were converted lecture theatres. Over the years it has changed to its present incarnation, which has 2 purpose built cinemas with wonderfully comfortable seats and a coffee shop which also sells wine and beer. This is not a cinema that you'll go to for the latest blockbuster,... More

This is the place for masterpieces and old movies and arty movies and foreign movies and anything that you're unlikely to find at the Googolplex. I think I saw my first show here in 1985 or 86, and if I went through the list of my dozen favourite movies, I reckon I saw a quarter of them here.
