this is a lovely mostly natural untouched park that is a piece of country heaven that once your strolling around it you would not think you are right next to a buzzing busy city

The art gallery only had one exhibition on about some snowy scene and that was about it and not much going on in the coffee shop or anywhere else either.

great size for intimate audience appreciation as usually adults only, who are there to watch and appreciate the film rather than eat popcorn etc. good to be able to enjoy a drink be it a cup of tea/coffee or something stronger. sound quality wxcellent.

A must to visit if only for a very nice cup of coffee and a snack! There are always interesting exhibitions taking place and the cinema shows top rated films as well as alternative world movies. A modern designed building that's not hard to find - visit if in Derby and at a loose end!

Excellent place to eat before or/and after the film...... We went to see Mr Turner and decided to have a sandwich before the film . This was freshly made and top quality - and we read the menu as we planned to eat dinner out ..... We were so impressed by the specials that we decided to return for dinner... More

Pros: Quite a unique arts and cinema centre in Derby with three screens showing indie films, and also a gallery area on the first floor. The ground floor bar is surrounded with a nice glass wall space, giving you the ability to look out at at your surroundings. Popular with all age groups, the quad gives you a real warm,... More

The Quad is super. Comfortable seats in the cinemas, excellent toilets and nice coffee shop. It is the sort of venue where women on their own feel really comfortable.

It's weird but I hated this place from the outside, but in the Quad cafe you can watch the world go by, enjoy a read, a decent meal or hot drink and cake and in summer sit outside - also has alcohol so a popular meet up spot for those who like to share a beer over a peppermint tea... More

Quad is a great value cinema complex that offers an eclectic variety of films. Some films are shown that have just been released the same week. The sweats in the auditoriums are very comfortable and the sound is great. The programme varies as does the type of films shown. I must go about at least once a month. This is... More
