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.

And the Depot Kino Collective curate their own choice of films for young adults.

French Film Festival

11 November – 13 December

We’re celebrating the best in modern French cinema as the 30th annual French Film Festival UK comes to Depot.

Christmas at Depot

25 November – 31 December

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!

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.


Cinelogue is a brand new film strand for Depot, screening arthouse, independent and cult films while engaging in discussion on issues surrounding film and cinema culture.

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).
