Events at Depot

September 2023 – August 2024

People living with dementia shouldn’t have to give up the things they love, due to inaccessible or unsupportive environments – including visiting a cinema. Depot hosts a series of screenings specially curated for audiences with dementia to enjoy with family and carers.

Every Sunday from January 2024

Join us every Sunday morning to experience the magic of immersive, cinematic virtual reality, and dive into multiple worlds of imagination and wonder – for free!

We hope you can join us for as many as possible to experience the full scope of VR films offer!

March 2024

There has been over a century of history and change since the first International Women’s Day (IWD) was held in March 1911. IWD isn’t country, group or organisation specific. It’s a day of collective global activism and celebration that belongs to all those committed to forging women’s equality.

Sunday 10 March

Mother’s Day provides a chance to celebrate the parents, partners, and friends who nurture and support others. If there’s someone special you’d like to say thank you to, an afternoon tea and a classic movie at Depot makes the ideal gift!

This year, enjoy a specially prepared menu along with a screening of George Cukor’s 1933 adaptation of Little Women, starring Katharine Hepburn as Louisa May Alcott’s iconic heroine Jo March. The film will include an introduction from Depot’s Events Manager Bonnie Macrae.

Airship engineer Dr. Graham Dorrington embarks on a trip to the giant Kaieteur Falls in the heart of Guyana, hoping to fly his helium-filled invention above the tree tops. But this logistic effort will not be without risk.

With the expedition is Werner Herzog, setting out now with a new prototype of the airship into the Lost World of the pristine rain forest of this little explored area of the world, to record and tell this unique story in an extraordinary, feature-documentary film.
