Is it down? Trying to book tickets. Can I just turn up? Are they full?

Put your sense of entitlement back in the box and save your anger for something that really matters. I've just looked at the website and it's up, so maybe there was just a glitch somewhere. 20 years ago, you would have just turned up and hoped for the best. Now you have a hissy fit if the world isn't working completely like clockwork.

Does anyone know when I book tickets online for the depot, can I order my pre-film meal?
I'm really interested in trying their quinoa and pomegranate salad with llama spunk (locally sourced of course) drizzled over the top.

You were doing so well until you inserted the word spunk. You should have used 'Jus', which any viewer of 'Come Dine With Me' will recognise.

Web site fine for me too. So fine I've just ordered tickets for Baby Driver... which does look cool.

Film on Four, what has what looks like a genuine enquiry about the Depot's website got to do with 'sense of entitlement'? Is it just a phrase you've been dying to get a chance to use? I suspect you may have something to do with the Depot, such is your superior tone.

@Cineaste - I honestly have nothing to do with the Depot, but I have worked with the public and I've often noticed that people feel they have an automatic right to something when in fact they're dealing with a private business and have no rights at all, other than their legal ones. I thought it was rather silly of someone to call themselves "Angry" in response to a website being down for a little while. It's the Depot, not NHS Direct. I can't say that I've had any overwhelming urge to use the phrase "sense of entitlement" but it seemed appropriate here.

It's pretty impressive how well they have optimised the depot website for search engines. If you just search for "depot" it's the first result...
See, I am being positive about the Depot!!

@FilmOnFour If you provide a service, the expectation is that it works. Not an unreasonable one. Though how people choose to deal with their anger is up to them. But it is nothing to do with entitlement, that's your own anger you have to figure out.

@Mr Flapp - Of course we expect a service to work, but in the real world unexpected hiccups occur. The Depot's website was only down for a brief time. I would have waited or phoned up rather than posting on the Lewes Forum. And you're quite wrong - it is a misplaced sense of entitlement. We are readonably entitled to be cross when a banking, utility or subscription channel is down because we've entered into a contract on the basis that they provide a reliable service. But The Depot is a new venture, funded by private money, finding its feet. They owe us nothing. I'm not angry with 'Angry'; I just think were wrong to complain so quickly.

If only a single person reports that a web site is down you have to consider there's a chance the issue is at the users end and not necessarily a problem with the web site.

I booked some tickets online for Dunkirk last week, the first payment failed so I tried again and it worked. Lo and behold! Even technology has blips, be patient.
It was my first time at the cinema and I thought they have done an outstanding job. The space is sociable and it was buzzing with people meeting for drinks before and after films.

I've been seven times and have seen films that I wouldn't bother travelling to Brighton for. It has made a real difference to me and I really appreciate the fact that the cinema is designed to maximise the viewing experience, rather than the shareholder value for some corporation. The seating is first class, compared to the economy class of other cinemas. They show a really broad range of films, charge less than other cinema's and have the latest state of the art equipment. How anyone can complain is baffling.

I echo your comments Earl of Lewes. Been to the cinema more in the past couple of weeks than in the past two years. I have found the on line booking really simple and saves queuing to get tickets. My B and B guests are amazed and very envious when they check the Depot out and have also seen films there as well as drinks/coffee etc. Huge asset to Lewes. I do wonder if several local businesses will/begin to suffer from people going to The Depot now. My other fear is that it might not be big enough to accommodate all the people wanting to use it.

Did anyone see Land of Mine?
I've never been so bl**dy frightened, and it wasn't even a horror film. The suspense, waiting for one of the boy soldiers to be blown up by a mine, was just too much. The visuals and the sound were stunning. Tense and captivating.
Like one of the posters above... I too have not seen more films in the last three months than I thought possible.. and almost every one was a corker.
The Depot has opened my eyes. Until recently I though it was only the blockbusters that could be good films... but most of the films I've seen at the Depot I'd not heard of before seeing them on the website... and most have far exceeded expectations. When tickets are so cheap it's rude to refuse!
Saying, that.. what the hell is Captain Underpants all about?
