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.

Book to Film Club

Third Monday of the Month

Depot’s Book to Film Club is a relaxed and open space to talk about books and movies. With classics, horror, and sci-fi on the shelf, there’s something for everyone to get their reading glasses on for.

Free Virtual Reality Experiences

Every Sunday from January 2024

Join us every Sunday morning to experience the magic of immersive, cinematic virtual reality, and dive into multiple worlds of imagination and wonder – for free!

These VR experiences covers challenging and important topics that are part of all of our world today – including the environment, disabilities, music, health, immigration and well-being.

We hope you can join us for as many as possible to experience the full scope of VR films offer!

QueerFest 2024

5 February – 1 March

QueerFest is back for its second outing at Depot this February. This year’s films focus on the diverse stories of past and present Queer characters, capturing experiences across cultures and continents.

The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2024

3 – 14 March

We invite you to join us at Depot for another year of exciting screenings from The Japan Foundation.

The JFTFP24 delves into Japanese cinema to explore how memories are employed in the cinematic voices of Japanese filmmakers, from films where memories are a focal point to works where they play a subliminal role in driving or affecting people’s minds and behaviour.

Dementia Friendly Screenings

September 2023 – August 2024

People living with dementia shouldn’t have to give up the things they love, due to inaccessible or unsupportive environments – including visiting a cinema. Depot hosts a series of screenings specially curated for audiences with dementia to enjoy with family and carers.


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.

Patrick Hamilton in Focus

13 – 19 May

In this new season, Depot’s Chair of Trustees, Robert Senior, will present a talk on Patrick Hamilton, we will be screening Hangover Square and the 1940 version of Gaslight, and the actor Mark Farrelly will present his acclaimed one-man show Silence of Snow about the life of Patrick Hamilton.

Cinemas of the Mind

Second Monday of the Month

A post-screening discussion facilitated by Dr Jake Harvey, a forensic psychiatrist, and Jenny Leeburn, a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. Whilst the discussion will focus on the psychological aspects of the film, and the emotional impact on the viewer, the club is very much open to everyone and all perspectives, views and ideas are most welcome (indeed encouraged).


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