My friends and I have starting meeting here on a regular basis as we love the cinema and the reasonable prices of the food and drinks. It's a great place to visit on a Sunday evening as you can have a hot drink as well as an alcoholic drink when other places are closed. It has a real buzz about... More

My son went to a screening of Star Wars with his friends from his activity group and it was great to see how much effort and thought they put into the event. They even had Some the staff dressed as characters. He loved it.

My favourite cinema with good bar and convenient café. Seats are very comfortable and the staff friendly. Try the burger and chips if your hungry.

I first went in to visit the seafood stall but discovered the rest of the market which was Wonderful! It has all these different stalls which range from cheap makeup to pet stalls. Foodwise, they also have meat, bread and cheese stalls.

We came to see the exhibition last week and decided to have some lunch before in the café. The food was tasty but quite expensive restaurant prices in a cafe. Also difficult to walk in between tables.

Great venue, unremarkable film. (Fred Astaire would turn in his grave if he could see it). However "Quad" is a lovely place to watch a film etc. They can't help putting on some dodgy films. 😀

Recently saw NTL screening of 'No Man's Land'. It was my first time in the cinema and I loved it. Staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Nice and cosy, comfy seats and a great experience. Can't wait to go back.

I was treated to a surprise visit to The Box which is one of three intimate cinema screens within the Quad arts venue. Great service, reasonably priced popcorn and a great, small screen with settees for early arrivals.
