Celebrate Reading Film Theatre’s 50th anniversary & design a new logo

Reading Film Theatre is celebrating its 50th year and wants your help to design a new logo to mark the occasion. 

Reading’s only independent cinema shows a range of art-house, foreign language and indie films as well as the occasional mainstream blockbuster. 

Having started as a joint project between the British Film Institute and the University of Reading, the registered charity runs with the help of 50 volunteers and in the words of its president, Sir Kenneth Branagh: “Independent cinema is vital to the cultural life of town and I am pleased to be President of the cinema which provides opportunities for people to see films that otherwise would not be shown in Reading.” 

Films are shown on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Palmer Building at the University of Reading where film goers can enjoy screenings with state-of-the-art equipment. 

The new season starts this month with films to amaze, amuse and delight. 

And there’s the chance for you to win a year’s Classic membership to the theatre in the competition to design a new logo ahead of next year’s anniversary.
