In our programme of 31 films from around the world listed below we joined with our venue partners Union Films in a joint presentation of Selma. The audience gave it 96%, which is in the top four films we've shown in the last 10 years and equal to our classic Lawrence of Arabia that we showed as part of the University's 'Great War: Unknown War' programme.
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! We think seeing 31 films for the Full Membership cost of around £70 is a really good deal! You can apply for Full Membership now or on the night you visit us. Just now until the end of the last film in our Season we have an Early-Early Bird offer: just £50 for the 2015/16 Season!
Students' admission is at Union Films' box office rates. Even cheaper is to become a Student Phoenix Season Member for just £30!
Our films are shown in Union Films Cinema in Southampton University Students Union. This is a fully-raked 320-seat cinema with 35mm and 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 7.30pm except where stated: we do not show trailers or advertisements. Food is available from the Union facilities - notably The Bridge bar and restaurant, which has a freshly-cooked to order menu. 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.
Our film diary is below with the audience reaction scores as we collect them. More details about the films are in our leaflet (6M pdf). Our periodic Newsletters are available for download after they are published.
Details of our previous Seasons can be found in the Films section.
