Leaflet coverOur chosen films for the rest of the 2023/24 season are in the diary section below.

To see all the films in a season join at any time. You can come for just one film, but we hope you'll come for more! The standard offering of over 26 films for the Full Membership cost of £90 is a really good deal. For the rest of the season Full Membership is available for £55 (or £15 for students). Don't forget that Full Membership also gets you entry to Union Films' presentations too.

Students' admission is at Union Films' box office rates or by holding a Union Films Premiere Pass or Student rate Phoenix membership.

Films are normally shown on Wednesdays at Union Films Cinema and generally start promptly at 8pm. We do not show trailers or advertisements. Southampton University Students Union cinema has 225 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. We ask everyone to score the film and comment on it afterwards so we can see how we are doing and you can contribute to our film choices.

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