“Good cinema”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

The cinema has a bar which is impressive but lacking popcorn and cup-holders in the very comfy theatre seats. Good views from anywhere in both theatres as the rows in front are a step down - watch out if you're unsteady on your feet as there are no rails/walls to hold on to. They often have events like special screenings sponsered by Jameson which are very popular and enjoyable.
Oh and watch out if youre in one of the first 5 rows at the front - theyre on the level which can make understanding (the many) subtitled movies tricky!!

“Exceptional customer service!”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Having visited Queens film theatre many times I would like to say that their approach and response to their customer queries and complaints is excellent. In addition to their policys I have no doubt that the individual employed can make a big difference to customer satisfaction.This was our last experience and the genltleman at the reception desk fulfilled his duties with this professionalism expected from an establishment of this standard. Thank you QFT.

“A great independent cinema”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The Queens Film Theatre is such a bonus for cinema lovers in Northern Ireland. I have to declare an interest as I started going over 30 years ago and just rejoined last year. It generally has a good selection of independent and and foreign films and it is great to enjoy a glass of wine or coffee at the cinema. The seating sound and projection are of good quality and I found the staff generally well informed and friendly.Highly recommended and if you have time visit the Queens University Lanyon building beside it.

“A must do for film buffs”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

The QFT is a bit like the Tardus - you enter an old Georgian style house in a , row of terraced houses beside the University, and within is a cosy, relaxed bar / coffee area to chill out, plus the two screens, each showing an eclectic mix of classic and alternative movies that you will not find in the mainstream movie houses. That, plus if you are not a fan of popcorn munchers, then this is a must. Lovely atmosphere, set in the lovely University area, where there are many restaurants to enjoy a pre or post movie meal.

“Excellent place for a conference!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Most of the reviews are for the theater's function as, well, a theater. I attended a conference in Belfast this week and this was one of the venues. I would gladly attend another conference here. The seats in the screening rooms were extremely comfortable. There were nice common areas. All of the technical stuff worked! (A rarity, believe it or not.)

Only down side: it is down a side street, but there is at least a sign for it from the main road.
