Cinemas of the Mind

The club meets on the second Monday of each month for 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). After the film, please get drink and/or snack and we will start the discussion 15mins after the film, usually in the Studio. The discussion will last up to an hour. 

*Cinemas of the Mind, part of the Arts Forum of Psychotherapy Sussex, has been running post screening events since 2001. CPD certificates available on request.

The discussion is included in the cinema ticket price.

Upcoming screenings

Blue Jean – Monday 13 February – 18:00

Followed by a discussion with special guest Lisa Holloway, a Doctoral Researcher and Tutor at University of Sussex.

England, 1988: Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government is about to pass a law stigmatising gays and lesbians, forcing Jean, a gym teacher, to live a double life. As pressure mounts from all sides, the arrival of a new girl at school catalyses a crisis that will challenge Jean to her core.

‘It’s a remarkably accomplished picture on every level, not least the keenly felt and fiercely authentic performances’ – Wendy Ide, Screen International
