Christmas at Depot

There really is nothing quite like Christmas, and for us at Depot, that means we get to bring Lewes the best selection of festive classics, as well as a range of exciting new releases and events to get you in the spirit!

We’ve got magical family fun with Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical, as well as, arguably, one of the best cinematic adaptations of Charles Dickens’ festive classic – The Muppet Christmas Carol. Of course, it wouldn’t feel quite like Christmas without Jimmy Stewart, and this year we’ve doubled up with It’s A Wonderful Life and The Shop Around the Corner.

Experience some larger-than-life theatrical performances from the comfort of Depot’s big screens with exciting new adaptations of The Nutcracker, performed by The Royal Ballet, and Mark Gatiss’ stage version of A Chrismas Carol: A Ghost Story, which is looking set to be a darkly delicious, ghostly Christmas treat. For your little one’s, don’t miss this year’s Cbeebies Christmas Panto: Dick Whittington and His Cat. To top off our Christmas offering, we’ll be showcasing one of the most anticipated films of all time, the visually spectacular Avatar: The Way of Water!

There’s all this to expect, and more! See the full programme of what’s coming up below.
