“Movie lover's paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

For ages now, the QFT has been THE place to go in Belfast if you're a movie lover. It shows the movies that the big multiplexes don't show, and it's clearly run by movie lovers too. It's recently been refurbished and the main cinema (one of two) is large enough to accomodate a substantial number of people but small enough to feel like you're somewhere special! The smaller cinema still has a feel of a lecture theatre to it (because that's exactly what it used to be!) but is still charming. QFT holds a number of special events and screenings throughout the year and it's well worth signing up to their email newsletter for the latest news.

Good selection of arty films to see. Nice bar, unfortunately no alcohol can be taken from the bar into the cinema screen

Great films, great atmosphere, chilled out and relaxed. Book your tickets as you may get there only to be disappointed.
