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 our Depot Young Programmers curate their own choice of films for young adults.

Saturday Horror

On the first Saturday of every month, Depot screens the greatest and most frightening horror films ever made. Across many sub-genres we explore slasher movies, body horror, the occult, zombies – the psychological and the indescribable. Always on the edge of acceptable movie viewing, horror films exploit our inner fears utilising ground breaking film techniques and powerful imagery. Make a date to join us every month for the best of classic horror … if you dare.

Cinemas of the Mind

Cinemas of the Mind meets monthly (on the first 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).

Depot Young Programmers
