Local cinema charity Lewes Community Screen is about to open The Depot next door to Self Storage Space in Lewes.
Actor Martin Freeman will officially open the cinema on Thursday 25th May 2017. Actor Mark Rylance will come to Lewes the following day, on Friday May 26th, to launch the Depot's community and education strategy.
The new cinema looks very impressive - the photo above was taken from our rooftop on top of Self Storage Space. The cinema is very high spec with all the 'bells and whistles' comprising three screens including 140 and 130 seat auditoriums, very smart restaurant, cafe and bar.
The new privately funded cinema reportedly cost a cool £8 million to construct. The Lewes community have desperately needed a purpose built cinema since the 1970s. The project is the brainchild of Robert Senior and Carmen Slijpen (Architect) who obtained the land from Harvey's Brewery. Self Storage Space is proudly sponsoring a seat for 10 years in the Auditorium.
