We were able to watch the film without getting twitchy bums. Excellent evening. Ideal venue for independent films. Very impressed with the film cant wait to... More

A really cosy little cinema, with great, comfortable seats. And a nice café, which serves wine too. Wonderful location in the North Laines area.

Can't imagine we'll go to an Odeon or Cineworld again after visiting this cinema. Comfortable, spacious, lovely food and drink and easily the best atmosphere in a cinema I've ever found. Perfect for blockbusters or indie films alike. Hang on for the half-price membership offers if you can, but even at full price this place offers a lot for not... More

Great Local cinema ! Really Good coffee and Grub along with friendly and helpful staff in a lovely location and makes the other local cinemas look very poor in comparison. I wish I had become a member years ago !

Forget high street cinema brands, this picture house venue is exactly how cinemas should be. With an eclectic selection of movies from the latest blockbusters through to art house, foreign, independent and classic retro or cult classics. They offer more than your basic popcorn and soft drinks. Surprisingly good coffee, independent sweets and snacks, pizza and cake. Just don't make... More

Dukes at Komedia is a charming little cinema and comedy club that caters to the entertainment needs of pretty much anyone. Customer service is always excellent, and staff members clearly communicate well with each other. Whilst the comedy club part of the building has brilliant wheelchair access, the cinema does not. Unfortunately screens do not have designated seats for wheelchair... More
