New book: Screen Stories – Lewes Goes to the Pictures

This new book was published by the Lewes History Group on 27 May 2017.

The building of Depot, Lewes’ new cinema, was the original catalyst for Screen Stories. Reel Lewes, a group of Lewes-based film professionals and researchers led by Ruth Thomson, has spent two years investigating the history of the three previous cinemas in the town: the County Theatre (Watergate Lane), Cinema de Luxe (School Hill) and the Odeon (Cliffe), which operated from 1910 to 1971.

Screen Stories book front coverThe team recorded what Lewesians remember about cinema-going in the past. While not intended to be a comprehensive history of Lewes cinemas, Screen Stories does vividly bring to life the importance of film and cinema, both in the life of the town and in the lives of its residents.
