Went to the Kedleston hall quad cinema on Friday to see the outdoor cinema showing of dirty dancing.... My goodness it rained.... But that didn't put any of us off! We stoically carried on eating our (very wet) picnic and the staff rallied around in a friendly manner, chivvying us all on! Came two years ago with my disabled friend... More

I only ordered a coffee, but the lady manager was so nice. Just chit-chat, but I like that. I asked directions to somewhere. I paid by card and the coffee was tasty.

We were in the box, which is a smaller room, we sat on the back row of seats but I did notice some nice sofa's closer to the front. Too... More

There is always lots to see and do at Quad, with interesting exhibitions and the quality,well programmed and comfortable indie cinema which Derby is so lucky to have. Not to mention all the events and courses. Long may it last. On this occasion I took in some of the works by local artist Clay Smith, enjoyed a delicious banana milkshake... More

Small cinema, with a good selection of more 'art' films. A great contrast to the large multiplex cinemas that abound in the city.

Quad is a really great place to spend the evening. It shows some mainstream films as well as foreign language and special interest or cult films. The cafe has a nice choice of light meals, pasta, burgers and sandwiches, lots of naughty cakes and sticky goodies, and serves a mean flat white or any other coffee you fancy. Lots of... More
