Lewisham until recently was one of only two London boroughs with no dedicated cinema space. Deptford Cinema is now the oldest cinema in Lewisham.
The cinema is a not-for-profit, volunteer & community run venue dedicated to bringing film and art of all kinds to the residents of Lewisham, in addition to providing a place where they can showcase their own artistic endeavours. We have recently begun full-time programming for the cinema, with building work expected to be completed in the coming months.
The cinema comprises a 40-seat theatre and cafe/lounge. The venue has the capacity for digital, 16mm and super8 projection.
Our programme is directed towards supporting the local community and providing opportunity for experience and education in experimental film and art.
