My first visit to Quad to see darkest hour, I enjoyed it. The John Hurt cinema has nice comfortable seats. I didn’t like the 15 mins of adverts and trailers beforehand though, I don’t got to Cinema often and forgot about them.
You can park free at the council offices car park after 5.30pm
I noticed you can get a cinema and meal deal.

I popped in for a coffee yesterday at about 11:10am (Sunday) and stood for ages waiting to be served. The male barista completely ignored me. The lady barista turned towards me, I thought she was going to serve me. However, she started to chat to the man and then turned away from me. I eventually walked out and went to Costa for my coffee instead. The service at Costa. was exemplary, lovely friendly staff. I have never experience such rudeness in a cafe before. I certainly will not return to the Quad cafe.

Perhaps as my title is a clue, visited the Quad to watch the Last Jedi, great place to watch a movie, comfortable seats, not too busy and you can take your drinks in.

My wife and I are members of the Quad. We have always found that the Quad offers value for money whilst supporting the community and allowing us to see less 'Mainstream' cinema that we might not otherwise have seen. On the 19th December we went to see 'The Man Who Invented Christmas'. This was about Charles Dickens and how he came to write 'A Christmas carol'. I am sure that this would not have been shown for long in a Bog Cinema. Its lovely to sit down with a glass of wine whilst watching the film. The bigger cinemas may now offer more luxurious seats but they also charge you for this luxury. The Quad gives you something different and more diverse than main stream cinema. I would say go NOW and see the free light show that is being :-shownKimchi and Chips: Line Segments Space. This will impress you I have no doubt.
