Film seasons and threads
Depot collaborates with organisations like House Biennial, the BFI, Lewes U3A and The Japan Foundation to explore a diverse and fascinating programme of film seasons. We also present threads that showcase the best work from directors like David Lean, Sergio Leone and Alfred Hitchcock.

Christmas at Depot
Anime at Depot
We regularly screen anime films that showcase the diversity and artistry of the medium, as well as hosting one-off special events. From classic family films to new releases aimed at a more mature audience, Depot is a space to enjoy the best of Japanese animation in the heart of Lewes.
Where possible, we provide the option to see these films either in the original Japanese with English subtitles or dubbed with English-speaking voice actors.
Depot Kino Collective
Depot Kino Collective is a group of young people dedicated to sharing an enthusiasm and knowledge of cinema through the hosting of specially selected screenings and events for young adults.
DKC produces and circulates its own marketing, organise events and aim to create unique, wider viewing opportunities for young people at the Depot. DKC screenings are curated, marketed and delivered by young people for young people, and shown once a month.
Cinemas of the Mind
Cinemas of the Mind meets monthly (on the second Monday of the month) for a post-screening discussion facilitated by Dr Jake Harvey, a forensic psychiatrist, and Jenny Leeburn, a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. The discussion will focus on the psychological aspects of the film, and the emotional impact on the viewer – but the club is very much open to everyone and all perspectives, views and ideas are most welcome (indeed encouraged).
