A great place for a bite to eat, take in a film or see an art instalation. The smaller cinema room is very hot, but fans are available on request!

For your non-standard films or ones that are being re-shown i.e. Taxi Driver during the last year you can't beat the Quad, good selection of beer to take in with you to watch in comfort in a good size screen, well worth a visit.

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
