About Us

Sonar Film is a multi award winning cinema, voluntarily run by students.
All films are £4 on display of a valid Solent student, staff or alumni card and £4.50 for anyone else!

In our 96 seated auditorium we show blockbuster films, run games tournaments, host free film nights and collaborate with charities to provide Solent University students with an affordable getaway.

We have a 2K Barco digital projector, an Xpand 3D system and a state of the art Dolby Atmos immersive sound system!

Our screen is 3 metres high and 7 metres wide with a projection scale capacity of up to 300 inches diagonal! We also have a Nintendo Wii, XBox 360, PS3 and Gaming PC with Steam that we put to good use.

Our auditorium has 4 wheelchair spaces with full access to the screen (1 ramp and 2 lifts).

You can also hire us out for private film nights, society socials and premieres. Contact us!
