Our Story

The younger, more contemporary, sister to the historic Duke of York's opened in December 2012. Duke's at Komedia is a two-screen cinema and bar situated predominantly in the upstairs portion of the established Komedia comedy club.

The cinema shows a heady mix of quality blockbusters and independent films to the culturally-rich Brighton community.
