The government’s new national restrictions mean that Depot will close for four weeks from 22:00 on Wednesday (4 November). We’re planning to reopen on Wednesday 2 December, if restrictions are lifted.

If you have booked to see a film during this period, our box office team will be in touch to arrange a refund. Online bookings will be refunded automatically.

The building may be closed, but Depot is still here for you. Take a look at our range of online courses for all ages. And this year’s Cinecity, the Brighton film Festival, continues online with Amplify!; running from 6 – 22 November, the collaborative online film festival is packed with feature films, shorts, and industry events available directly to you at home.

Our full programme of great films takes us up to this Wednesday evening, when we offer the perfect last chance to see friends and family before lockdown. Our Bangers and Beer event (originally scheduled for bonfire night) has live music from the Boogie Woogie Troop, Harveys Bonfire Boy and a fantastic special menu featuring bonfire favourites with a Southern States twist. All very carefully organised to be socially distanced and Covid-secure, inside and outside (dress warm).

We promise you lots to look forward to when we return, so keep an eye on our website and social media for updates. Until then, stay safe, and thank you as ever for all your support.
