The London Borough of Lewisham was one of only two London boroughs with no dedicated cinema. Deptford Cinema is a not-for-profit community led project that decided it was time to make this change, with the building of a new venue for film and arts on Deptford Broadway.
The cost of a cinema ticket today can be upwards of £12 and even more when you factor in the travel for Lewisham residents to nearby Greenwich or Southwark, or central London; it is increasingly no longer an affordable night out. Cinema should be for everybody, more often, and that’s the ethos of Deptford Cinema, providing interesting cinema, that’s also accessible.
The cinema survives because of the passion and hard work of all the volunteers involved.London Cinema
