Booked (£13.40 for pair of tickets) online for 20th Century Women for a Saturday night screening. Friendly barman served pre-film wine and wheat beer to enjoy in the foyer/bar area (plastic tumbler option enables drinks to be taken into cinema). Comfortable seating and superb sound to complement engrossing story, entertainingly told. Credits allowed to roll in their entirety so soundtrack... More

A visit to the cinema for me is something to escape to. However, the "big" chains/multi-nationals can be quite mundane. A trip to QFT is a delightful experience. They offer "regular" films, plus a wealth of excellent small budget, foreign and unusual screenings, with "live" theatre performances from the National Theatre etc. Look out for "Joan" coming soon. The staff... More

I love the QFT. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. You can have coffee or a drink and meet friends beforehand. My favourite cinema in Belfast

I love going to the QFT (Queens Film Theatre). It shows a good mix of genres, with a much nicer feel/atmosphere than usual chain cinemas. It is also the only licensed cinema in Northern Ireland so you can bring a drink in with you from the lovely cafe/bar area.

Hadn't been to QFT in many years but went last week for a showing of the classic 'Its a Wonderful Life' Very enjoyable experience in a great social venue. Super comfortable seats. Would recommend but I will say the bar prices are extortionate and the service poor.
