The sing along was great my daughter loved it however the range of snacks was poor and horrendously expensive. If there not willing to let you bring your own snacks they should already have a better range. And a hefty price tag for the tickets too! £23.00 for 2 adults and a 2 year old is ridiculous!

I recently booked tickets at the Quad to see Belle with two friends. We loved it, not only because the film was brilliant but because the Quad is such a lovely venue to see a film at! The seating is spacious and comfy and we were pleasantly surprised by the fairly priced drinks at the bar!

It is great to have the Quad in Derby that is different from other cinemas. Very comfortable seating including sofas and plenty of legroom. Food is very good too and you can take drinks and food into the cinema.
