Depot is an independent community cinema and cafe-restaurant created and operated by the charity Lewes Community Screen and located in the centre of Lewes, East Sussex.
It takes its name from its site, which was originally a GPO depot and, more recently, a Harvey’s Brewery depot. Depot opened to the public in May 2017.
The project was the brainchild of Carmen Slijpen and Robert Senior, two Lewes residents who share a passion for cinema.
