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.

Food locally sourced, served hot and tastes great. Great atmosphere in the cafe bar, good vibe in the evenings. Never had a negative experience here, always look forward to going to Quad.

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.

Really didn't like King Lear but that was not Quads' fault! The theatre was very comfortable spacious clean and tidy. It was the first time I have been but I will give it another try.

An interesting cinema program. Lots of activity for children during holidays. Lego party on Saturday during holidays. And access to a wide range of exhibition in the hall at the back of reception.

This is an absolute gem of a place. Derby has been lacking a decent arts centre until the Quad opened. It is the venue for the national Format Photographic exhibition where photographers from around the World display their art. There are always various courses being run, I personally went on the Street Photography course held there recently. The cinema screens... More

We have only been to the cinema here but we found it the most comfortable cinema we have ever been to. I am fairly tall and I really appreciated the extra legroom, particularly if you sit on the row behind the aisle.

An independent Cinema (2 screens plus a smaller less comfortable viewing room) plenty to see a good cafe providing meals and drinks throughout the day. During the daytime it can get a bit busy with mums and babies congregating. Useful outdoor seating area but with all the building and repair work going off at the Assembly Rooms directly opposite it... More
