“Fantastic Surpise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Went last month with a friend to see the film 'Quartet'. When they had said the QFT, I was thinking oh god that wee place down the lane..... (Memories from an old school trip in the 90's). However, what a surprise! Clean, bright, friendly..... Great atmosphere, Only 1 small draw back is poor parking, however this is taken away by the fact they serve alcohol, a nice glass of wine before and after a film is a great treat.

Definitely be back.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I am, by no stretch of the imagination a movie buff, but ever now and them something a bit out of the ordinary at QFT catches my eye - and I've yet to be disappointed.

Great place, great ambience, great staff, something for everyone. A sure one for the bucket list for those of you who haven't been.

“You won't want to go back to chain cinemas.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I love QFT because the range of films shown there is excellent for cinephiles, but also because the feel is so different from an evening at the chain multiplex. As a small cinema, it has a great atmosphere. Staff are friendly and helpful and you can often find great plays on at the Brian Friel Theatre. The only problem is that the seats aren't the most comfortable in the cinema or in the theatre.

“a wonderful resource”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

QFT offers a wonderful range of films - indie, foreign, non-mainstream - in luxurious accommodation. Locals are extremely fortunate to have such a cultural resource available.

“The Best Cinema in Northern Ireland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A small modern cinema for film lovers, it has a good bar and a nice area to sit, which is popular with the many film students who frequent there.
