Hello!

How should I place my Sonos products to get the best sound for movies in this room?

I've got:
1 Sonos Beam
1 Sub
3 play1

I'm willing to buy more Sonos products if that helps.
I'm not willing to rearrange the sofas.

Before the sound, the video bit: does everyone watch the movie with the head turned to one side?

No, not really. The sofas are really deep so you can sit 2 people sideways in each.
The usual approach would be to place the Beam centred under the screen, with the Sub one side of the screen.
The two play 1 units for surround would be wall or stand mounted between the sofa and the wall behind them, pointed towards each sofa.
No room for the third play unit, and you don't need more Sonos products for the set up.
