“Great variety of movies”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Visit aft at least 3 times a month. Great foreign films, always a bit different to mainstream cinema. Nice bar area serving good choices of beverages

“Cool cinema in Belfast for foreign/alternative films”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

This is a great independent-run cinema in South Belfast which shows great movies from all over the world. Prices are competitive and there is a great bar inside where you can a coffee/wine before watching the film. Check out their website for all the new releases/programmes.

It looks very secretive & exclusive. A lecturer allowed us in to snap pix of Brian Desmond Hurst's plaque. Very cool place.

“One of a kind”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

I know I'm showing my age, but I remember this cinema in the 1980's when it was a lecture theatre by day - complete with hard wooden seats and pull down desks (I can also still remember the complete loss of feeling in my nether-regions having sat through almost 3 hours of "Fitzcarraldo"). In the years since then, the decor has become unrecognisable - and the seating very comfortable!! Where else in Belfast can you see such a selection of constantly changing films (often with subtitles) which are never going to make it to minstream cinema. Both my husband and I are annual members, and this represents very good value for money. The bar area (recently revamped) is also handy for meeting up before a film for a drink or a cup of coffee. The cheaper rate on a Monday night does pull in the punters but, unfortunately, also attracts those who arrive late, have enormous difficulty in deciding where to sit and are incapable of keeping quiet for a couple of hours (and we're not talking students here, but the packs of elderly ladies!). For that reason alone, we give Mondays a miss whenever possible.

“My favourite Belfast cinema”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

QFT is a cinema for film fans - it features the unusual, the not-so-blockbusters and isnt afraid to show subtitled films. I also like the way it's clean and comfortable; your neighbours aren't munching their way through 2kg of popcorn and you dont stick to the floor because of spilt cola. People seem to go to watch and enjoy films. What a pleasant surprise!
