Queen's Film Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located up a side alley, the Queen’s Film Theatre opened in October 1968, with Bridget Bardot and Jeanne Moreau in “Viva Maria”. It was previously used as a lecture hall and had wooden seats.

In the mid-1990’s a second screen was added which seats 88. It underwent a refurbishment in 2003 and the main screen now seats 220.

The Queen’s Film Theatre, being close to Belfast University, attracts many students and also an audience from all over Belfast. It is a member of the Europa Cinemas group.

Hello! I’m trying to recall which cinema in downtown Belfast screened “Mississippi Burning” in 1989? Does anyone remember if it was The Cannon or The Curzon or the university? This is research for a book. I pay in pints! :)

As can be seen from my photographs, the former entrance down the side alley has been completely blocked off, and the entrance is now on University Square. Presumably this was done during a major refurbishment that took place in 2003. Unfortunately, the powers that be will not allow poster boards or other advertising by the new entrance, leaving a rather nondescript doorway! By way of some small compensation, the poster cases at the entrance to the side alley (round the corner, off College Street) are still utilised, although only regulars will be aware of them!
