A wonderful sound and light experience. So magical and uplifting. Imagine a large room and on 3 walls beautiful images appear, constantly changing and immersing you in a fabulous experience of the changing seasons in Japan. Children love it because they can touch the pictures and watch them change

I have visited the Quad or a few occasions and sat in many of the screens. The place is more intimate than your regular cinema. Some screens even have a personal touch with settees and low level coffee like tables! The main screens allow you to purchase alcohol and soft drinks. And if you fancy it a well earned ice... More

Really nice to see Quad not forgetting their gluten free customers. Enjoyed the new single wrapped tarts on the counter and the well marked gf tapas menu. I read they also introducing a gf pizza. Like Quad for not making this special food special in the sense anyone could eat and enjoy it, looks and tastes great. Thanks Quad for... More

QUAD can best be described as an all purpose venue, where you can go to the cinema, or experience one of the excellent exhibitions such as the interactive event put on by Team Lab and called 'What a Loving, and Beautiful World' The QUAD website states...the Japanese interdisciplinary creative collective teamLab are ‘Ultra-technologists' who produce large-scale immersive installations that utilise...

Best screens in town, food and drink options make for more of an event than a visit. Always the best from world cinema, as it has been since the old days back in Green Lane. Kudos.

Really enjoyed our visit cinema is small but has sofas and you can take alcohol in from the bar. They always have an exhibition on here some I feel is a bit too extreme and alternative for me but Hey Ho takes all sorts. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable, run by the City Council prices are reasonable.

A group of mums turned up, we had pushchairs and some of us needed high chairs. The staff were so friendly and accommodating- they pushed tables together for us, got us high chairs and opened a room for us to leave our pushchairs in. On top of that the food and drinks are amazing! Going to come here to visit... More
