After several bad experiences in the mainstream cinemas in Derby where the local knuckle scrapers seem to think paying £10 a head to use their phones and talk all through the showing is a good idea we decided to try something a bit different. The Quad is great and a real escape from spending the whole showing wanting to physically... More

Great venue housing several theatres for film, with an excellent cafe- restaurant and gift area. Very easy to book film showings online.

The QUAD is great for a different type of cinema experience. The interior makes it feel more personal and less like one of the bigger companies, downstairs is a small cafe with average prices for a cafe in the middle of town. Being situated in town it is perfect for a coffee after a day of shopping.

I used to go a lot but recently not so as the range of films is not as wide and foreign films are scarce. The food in the café is expensive and average. This is a shame! I saw interesting exhibitions there this year. I have never used the video activity they offer. I will try this year.

We just love Quad. The cinema is like being in someones front room and it is very relaxed. Good exhibitions also and a great cafe and bar.

I visited for lunch with work colleagues. I has baked potato with chilli and cheese and a fruit tea. The food was well presented, and reasonable in quality and taste. I felt it was expensive did what it was, but the food was reasonable quality. The environment was ok, i felt the tables inside were a little tight on space... More

Excellent seating with good leg room. If traveling from Nottingham to Derby ease of access as it is just over the road from the stop. Lift to upper floors if needed.
