The sing along was great my daughter loved it however the range of snacks was poor and horrendously expensive.

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.

I love this place and it is easily my favourite place to go in the city! It has a great atmosphere and a whole host of events on all the time with something for everyone. The food is good too so it really does have everything. Everyone should take the time to check it out!

We have come here a couple of times as we like to have a glass of wine and watch the weddings at the registry office next door. Location fantastic. I am not a fan of the interior however, the food and are generally very good. It's a nice lace to come and relax they just need to get nicer chairs.

We visit the Quad regularly to look at exhibitions and to go the the cinema for the kids club. I and my children absolutely love this cinema, the auditoriums are fantastic and always very clean. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Quad.
