Duke’s At Komedia 5th Birthday Celebrations!

Dukes At Komedia are celebrating their 5th birthday in style! Check out what our beloved Brighton cinema has in store this weekend and beyond.

This month Duke’s At Komedia Picturehouse Cinema in Brighton, we’re celebrating our fifth birthday – how time does fly!

Back in December 2012 we opened our doors for the very first time, and in the five years that have passed we’ve grown as one of the most recognised spots for entertainment in Brighton, delivering countless great screenings and events, hosting the acclaimed Cinecity Film Festival, and making many new friends along the way through our loyal and growing audience.

To celebrate this milestone, we’re hosting some special screenings from Sunday 10th December, all of which are at the special birthday price of £5!

Sat 9 Dec, 9pm – Sightseers


One of the very first films we screened during our opening weekend. We’re bringing back Ben Wheatley’s classic dark comedy thriller, telling the story of a couple’s (Alice Lowe and Steve Oram) cross-country road trip which takes a deadly turn when they decide to start killing everyone who annoys them.

We’re also delighted to be joined by co-star Steve Oram for a live pre-film Q&A.

Sun 10 Dec, 3pm – Audience Choice: The Great Beauty


As picked by our loyal audience as the best film of the last five years, revisit The Great Beauty – one of the greatest films to grace our screen; Paolo Sorrentino’s 2013 masterpiece tale of Jep Gambardella, who has seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades. But after his 65th birthday and a shock from the past, Jep looks past the nightclubs and parties to find a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.

This film was voted for by our audience from a list of selected films compiled from our staff’s top ten films from each year dating back to 2012. Thank you to everyone who cast their votes!
