On the spur of the moment, my husband and I went to see a wonderful 'arty' film about mountains. We so enjoyed being seated in one of the small cinemas. We sat there with a glass of wine in hand, in the best comfy seats ever. We found all the staff charming and helpful. We will certainly return. The only downside is having to find somewhere to park (and pay) where our usual cinema parking is free. However, the benefits of viewing films here in comfy seats out strip any negatives.

The Quad is an excellent venue to watch movies or live beamed theatre shows etc. Very relaxed & comfortable - plus reasonably priced food & drink!

Great vibe at the Quad. Diverse clientele. Interesting movies, often not the mainstream releases. Good basic food in the cafe. Interesting exhibitions

Went to see the new release of Journeys end. Been here a few times it has always been very good the staff are always nice and helpful you can also grab a beer and wine or also a coffee as we did pretty nice sitting there with a nice cold beer watching the film I tend to watch most new releases there now so much easier than showcase.

Also a nice little cafe downstairs.
