Our 2017/18 Programme continues

Leaflet coverThe results of the Season so far with the rest of the program can be seen below. We are currently voting for the films to show in our Audience Choice slots, so do join in!

If you would like to become a member you can join at any time. You can come for just one film, but we hope you'll come for more! Unfortunately, some of our prices have gone up for 2017/18 due to increasing running costs. But we think seeing around 30 films for the Full Membership cost of £80 is a really good deal.

Students' admission is at Union Films' box office rates. Even cheaper is to become a Student Phoenix Season Member for just £25 or hold a Union Films Premier Pass.

Our films are shown in Union Films Cinema in Southampton University Students Union. This has 225 new, comfy, fully-raked seats, cinema-standard digital projection with surround sound. We show the films in the best format available, with their original soundtrack plus English subtitles, when appropriate. A handout containing credits and further details is provided and we ask everyone to score the film and comment on it afterwards.

Films are shown on Wednesdays and start promptly at 8pm. We do not show trailers or advertisements. Food is available from the Union facilities - notably The Bridge bar and restaurant. Nibbles and drinks are available from Union Films snack counter. The Bars are often open afterwards so you can discuss the films' impact with fellow members.

We look forward to you coming and enjoying what we believe to be the best contemporary films from around the world.
