Our 2015/16 Programme Completes
We'll be back on 5th October! We are now thinking about what to show in our next 2016/17 Season. Our draft film diary will appear first on this website when available. Our 2015/16 film diary is below with a summary of how they scored with our audiences. The leaflet giving further details about our programme is still available (6M pdf).
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 over 30 films for the Full Membership cost of around £70 is a really good deal! You can apply for Full Membership for 2016/17 shortly or on the night you visit us.
Students' admission is at Union Films' box office rates. Even cheaper is to become a Student Phoenix Season Member for - in 2016/17 - for just £25!
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 - and still can do 35mm! 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 will now start promptly at 8pm, our original starting time a few years ago. 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.
Our film diary is below. As we show the films the reaction score are added together with access to the Newsletters. More details about the films are in our leaflet (6M pdf).
Details of our previous Seasons can be found in the Films section.
