Reading Film Theatre - Filth

I'm planning to go along to see "Filth" and if you'd like to join me then you'll be more than welcome. As this is a "School Night" there isn't really enough time for a meal beforehand, and it'll probably be too late for one afterwards, so this Meetup is for the film only.

Meet at 7.30pm for 8pm start.

What's the film about?

Freely adapted from Irving Welsh’s novel, “Filth” follows detective Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy) as he appears to be investigating the murder of a foreign student whilst playing his colleagues off against one another to clear the path for his promotion and win back his absent wife. Robertson is one of those transgressive, dirty cops, a character who is completely vile but with a buried heart.

The "Rotten Tomatoes" website has links to a number of reviews if you'd like to find out more about the film. 


Tickets are available either in advance from the Reading Film Theatre website via this link or they can be bought on the evening.

If you plan to buy a ticket on the evening, I'm not sure if they have a credit card machine so it may be worth bringing cash just in case.

Ticket Prices

Reading Film Theatre Members £5.50

Non-members £7.50

Senior citizens, students and unwaged £5.50 (on production of proof of status)

Children 14 and under £5.50.

The RFT have kindly agreed to allow us a group rate of £5.50 a ticket as long as there are 6 or more of us, and as long as we all buy our tickets at the same time. 


The Reading Film Theatre website has information on how to get to the Whiteknights campus by car or bus, as well as a map showing where the Minghella Building is located on campus. You can find that information here

Where to Meetup

I've not been to a screening in the Minghella Building before, so I can't suggest where we can meet inside the building because I don't know! :) Therefore let's meet just inside the entrance. I'll try to remember to be holding a "Film Fans" sign for anyone who hasn't met me before.

    Thanks to the guys who were able to make it tonight, and for the first timers I should just mention that when the RFT show films in their usual home then you get the full nine yards - adverts, trailers, Pearl & Dean, etc and no DVD menus... :o)

    Would have liked to go to this meetup but unfortunately came down with chest infection over the weekend so curled up on sofa feeling sorry for myself. Hopefully i'll be feeling better for Saturdays meetup.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
