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.
Made in Sussex
The historic county of Sussex … crossed by the chalk South Downs, which slope back from the Weald to meet the English Channel in that iconic line of white cliffs.
Virginia Woolf described the South Downs as “too much for one pair of eyes, enough to float a whole population in happiness, if only they would look”.
Little wonder, then, that Sussex has been chosen as the setting for a number of films.

Cinemas of the Mind
Cinemas of the Mind events at Depot are currently on hiatus, and we eagerly anticipate their return in the future.
Cinemas of the Mind events feature 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).
