Sono Art-World Wide Pictures was an American film distribution and production company that existed from 1927 to 1933. Among their feature films was The Great Gabbo (1929) starring Erich von Stroheim and directed by James Cruze for James Cruze Productions, Inc. One of the last films distributed by the company was A Study in Scarlet (1933) starring Reginald Owen as Sherlock Holmes.

The Death Kiss (1932) produced by Tiffany Pictures and released by Sono Art-World Wide Pictures with Sono Art logo in lower right corner of poster

Sono Art was also the original U.S. distributor for four Alfred Hitchcock films, Downhill (1927), Easy Virtue (1928), The Manxman (1929), and Blackmail (1929), as well as the British Anna May Wong vehicle Piccadilly (1929).

In 1933, Sono-Art merged with Rayart pictures to form Monogram Pictures. The original Monogram (including its library) merged into Republic Pictures in 1935; that library is now owned by Paramount Pictures (through Republic). The "new" Monogram started in 1937, later becoming Allied Artists and merging into Lorimar Productions (now part of Warner Bros.) in 1979.
