Who we are!

Pop-Up Cinema began as a company that just sold screens and have been busy sourcing and supplying all the supporting technology to successfully screen movies anywhere. And we mean pretty much anywhere, from your backyard to the side of a mountain to the posh poolside of an exclusive hotel. In the background, we have also helped to create a groundswell of good faith projects to bring movies to underserved areas that don’t have classic Drive-in or picnic-style outdoor screenings.  The foundation is being built as we speak – read our Focus On Africa post where you can opt to get involved.

Filmgoers, find a drive-in or outdoor cinema!

When you’re friend turns to you on your night off and asks, “What now?” Search our map based interactive search engine to find a venue near you to watch a movie!  You can also find a cinema set up to rent for your next event.

Follow us, use our hashtags (#popupcinema), tag us in your pics, mention us in your posts, and create your own unique identifying hashtags to make it easy for your audience to find out what you are doing and where. Encourage your audience to “share” their experience at your event with the world and tag you. You can also encourage them to go back to your listing on and rate your event and write a review.

PRO TIP: Depending on the size and location of your venue experts suggest when using larger venues to raise the screen. Creating a stage or platform might be necessary for the viewers in the back to be able to see. The venue might have a natural hill or mound that could be explored for the exact location of the screen.
