Yes. If you're booking for a group larger than 10 please contact us on qftmanager@qub.ac.uk as group discounts will apply. 

Historically seating has been unallocated at QFT. We will continue to have unallocated seating for off-peak screenings, i.e. screenings before 5.30pm during the week. All screenings excluding weekday matinees and festivals will be allocated from 1 March 2020.  

Due to changes in Queen’s University Belfast phone’s system we can no longer take payment over the phone. You can book online at any time or in person at the Box Office or Bar. If you’re having any difficulty booking please contact us on qftmanager@qub.ac.uk.

All our tickets are non-refundable. We do have an exchange policy. You must notify us at least 48 hours in advance of your screening to get an exchange. Exchanges are at the discretion of QFT staff. Find out more about our exchange policy in our Terms of Use.

We follow BBFC guidelines. Find them here. If you look under the age of these restrictions, i.e. under 15 or under 18, you may be asked to show ID. We occasionally have films that are yet to be classified by the BBFC, in this case we are able to suggest a recommended age limit based on BBFC guidelines. These recommendations are legally binding and we will not permit entry to anyone under the recommended age.

Yes. QFT is open to all. Certain films will be age restricted in line with BBFC age restrictions. If you look under the age of these restrictions, i.e. under 15 or under 18, you may be asked to show ID. We operate the Challenge 25 policy at our bar when serving alcohol. If you look like you could be 25 or under, we may ask to see ID to prove you are over 18.
