The Depot is a community cinema being developed on the site of what used to be a depot for Harveys Brewery, hence the name. This inspired project is being made possible by the support of film enthusiast Robert Senior and the management and direction of Carmen Slijpen.

Whilst keeping the appearance, the walls and roof will be highly insulated and the floor will have underfloor heating and cooling, driven by a 90 kW ground sourced heat pump which extracts heat from 12 deep boreholes.

The new extension will have a green roof and dramatic floor to ceiling double glazed windows, reducing heat loss in winter with solar reflective coating to prevent overheating in summer.

56.0pt 84.0pt 112.0pt 140.0pt 168.0pt 196.0pt 224.0pt 3.5in 280.0pt 308.0pt 336.0pt">This exciting build is primarily a community resource and will provide three screens in the new auditorium to show not only current releases, but also having the flexibility to show classics and other films of interest. The opening date is expected to be spring/summer 2017.
