In the presentation by the Reel Lewes team on June 2017 to the Lewes History Group, we were shown a few short clips from the filmed reminiscences of older local residents of their personal experiences attending Lewes cinemas. However, what was shown was only a small proportion of the material collected by the team about this aspect of Lewes history.
The complete film ‘Big Screen Memories’ celebrating cinema going in the town runs for 56 minutes, and was seen by many visitors to the Depot in the new cinema’s opening fortnight in May 2017.
We have now been able to arrange a repeat screening of ‘Big Screen Memories’ at the Depot open to everyone for 11 a.m. on Thursday 1 February 2018.
Venue: Depot Cinema, Pinwell Road, Lewes, BN7 2JS
Tickets: available via the Depot Box Office at £6 (£4 for concessions).
