Out to sea at the UTC
The fourth and final film event of the Re-imagined Buildings project goes out to sea with the 'Life of Pi' at the UTC@harbourside, in two buildings from Newhaven's industrial past which have been renovated to provide students with the education of science and technology.
In addition to the film, this event gives people a rare opportunity to look inside these Grade 2, former Marine and Carpenters’ workshop buildings, which until 2015, lay semi-derelict on Newhaven’s Railway Quay since the 1970’s. The evening includes a guest speaker; an exhibition of documentary photographer Carlotta Luke’s striking images of the renovation and a café/bar run by Newhaven and District RNLI.
The screening takes place at 6.30pm on Thursday 17 November and tickets of £5/£3 (concessions) are on sale from Newhaven Town Council and Seaford Tourist Information Centre.
Screened in partnership with Lewes Depot, Film Hub South East and Lewes District Council, the vision for the project developed as a response to each of the individual buildings heritage, location or current use. This is not cinema as we know it but a celebration of regeneration, an exploration of the spaces themselves. Re-imagined Buildings aims to inspire and inform local communities on the history and future of familiar places, giving a fresh look at the buildings people see each day.
