“North by Northwest”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We went to the QFT for the Alfred Hitchcock season. The Jamieson bar is a tribute to low lighting at its best. Great coffee and books to read, and 2 girls when we were in were playing drafts. There's lots of room there while you're waiting. I got a bottle of wine free, because I'm a new gold card member there. We were quite happy by the time our film started. I was given 2 free tickets to future features.
In the auditorium your seats are very wide - elsewhere you're too close to other people. Very relaxing lighting in there. Highly recommended. The toilets are very nice.

“Best movie hall to watch World films!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

I have been there several times to watch different types of movies. They introduce different World movies such as Spanish, French, Italian, Indian etc. Staffs are very good. It is the Queen's University film theatre, and it is situated in the heart of this university. They have many cinema rooms which show different films in each room. You will get all facilities there like beer, snacks, coffee etc.

“comfy seats and unusual movies”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I find its very easy to relax here. The seats are comfy, the staff are helpful and even the seating outside before you go in is nice for a quick drink before a movie, all in all a nice experience

“Fantastic Surpise”
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!”
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.
