As a regular user of the Quad's facilities , we believe Derby City is well blessed with having an attraction ssuch as this. If one is of an artistic persuasion, lunch and matinees are a great combination at reasonable cost.

Plenty of choices and some real special re-release of films i.e. Taxi Driver, you can get a drink in the two bars before, after and during the showings. Good staff and a pleasant atmosphere, well worth a visit to see an old classic.
