State of the art cinema, a sound system to die for, bar, restaurant. cafe and outside terrace. Hard to believe it could exist in lil' ole Lewes.
Can't wait. I'm going to test out the sound system with 'Machines'. It's made for it.

Seeing as the cinema and programmer is local I'd have thought requests would be welcome. Why don't you use the contact form on the web site to request films?

Looks good; a reasonable mix of popular and more arty. The BFI films are a welcome addition. Will certainly check it out.

To watch peppa pig, mum and dad will pay £9 each, plus £3/4 per child. So I will wait for the DVD.

Duh? The point being made, for a 72 minute film aimed at children, is the cinema affordable to families to use regularly. Would you pay £22 to watch Peppa Pig? Or would you decide to wait for the DVD that your child could watch again and again?

Well, it's not about that, you pay for the experience so yes I often pay 20-30 pounds for either having cake in a cafe instead of home or going to the cinema to meet other like minded people w kids.

£9/£4 is expensive, especially as you can get much better offers in uckfield and Brighton. Looks like they've thought about concessions really well, although full price if you're 15 years old is a bit steep.

Yes you could drive to Uckfield and Brighton - but step back and factor in petrol, car running costs, parking and your time - and £9 is just about OK.

The prices are reasonable compared against other cinemas nearby (Brighton, Uckfield etc). Seeing as most Lewesians will be able to walk or cycle to this one and the facilities appear considerably superior it's a bit of a no-brainer.

Local: You obviously don't go to the cinema very often.
Since my days at the Odeon Cliffe, ticket prices have risen considerably from 6d, but so have house prices from £500 (around 1000 times). If the prices had risen at the same rate it would make a cinema seat around £25 per seat.
Today prices for a family of 2 adults and 2 children:
Picture house Uckfield - £34
Odeon Brighton - £33.50
Lewes Depot - £26; and the price is even cheaper Sun-Thurs before 5pm - £20
Lewes Depot wins by a mile!

Local why do both you and your partner need to go, quick way to reduce most of that cost is for only one of you to go?
Unless of course you both want to go for the experience of taking your daughter to the Cinema.
I noticed they server Bolney wine, so I'm happy.

Yes the experience is worth the money, if the film you are going to watch is the latest release. Perhaps a familly tickets should be available. This would encourage families to use the depot regularly. And a yearly cinema ticket for those who will regularly use the depot.

I think it's all hands on deck to get the place opened on time (have you seen that the builders are still there?) and some things are suffering a little, like PR (communication) addition menus to website, details of membership and such like. These will happen. For now though it can be seen that Depot cinema offers the best value around.
If you are around the station/Pinwell area have a look at the building. It's impressive
