Why host your own Pop-UpCinema?
Pop-Up Cinema provides entertainment for all ages. It is a fun way to bring people and communities together, attract new business, increase revenue, as well as educate, inspire and motivate staff and students.
Through word of mouth and media attention, outdoor movie events can attract a following from within the community and surrounding areas.
What cities do you service?
We can pop-up cinema all over South Africa and have partners in Africa and around the world – so get in touch to explore the possibilities: firstname.lastname@example.org
How much do your outdoor movie cinema’s cost to hire?
Production cost will vary depending on a variety of factors. We have several different screen sizes that can accommodate a variety of audience sizes and event types (such as pool-side / rooftop, drive-in cinema, open air cinema or indoor experiential). A major factor in the production cost is the screen you choose. Another factor in the cost is the distance our team must travel to your event from our office.
What type of clients book Pop-UP Cinema?
Whether you’re planning a school fundraiser, festival, corporate event, team-building workshop, conference, for your school, NGO, or company, Pop-Up Cinema will conceptualise a cinema experience and suggest films to suit your needs and target audience. If you are looking to boost a quiet night in your restaurant or hotel, let Pop-UpCinema make magic that night!

How long does it take to set up an outdoor cinema?
We will need access to the venue from midday. We need at least 4 hours to set up.
What time can we start the movie?
Our projectors are bright enough to see the images on the movie screen 15 minutes before dark, however, for the best possible movie experience we suggest starting the movie 10 minutes after sunset.
Will the screens affect our venue?
Setting up our inflatable movie screen for a one night event will not damage the venue grass or flooring. The movie screens that we use, are designed to distribute the weight of the screen over the entire surface of the frame. The screens are set up only a few hours before the movie is to start and are taken down immediately after the movie screening.
Do you offer any pre-movie entertainment?
We encourage you to open doors at least 1.5 hours before the movie is scheduled to play. We have a network of entertainers (hula hoop dancers, visual artists, comedians, fire dancers) and musicians that we can refer you to. We can also offer you our mobile, massage@themovies tent, popcorn machine and pop-up gallery. Ambient music or music to suit the chosen film is a great way to set the ambiance.
What happens if the weather is bad?
Pop-UpCinema is weather reliant. In the case of heavy rain or winds the event will be postponed. We NEVER cancel the event – the show must go – We always ask our clients to have two available dates for their outdoor cinema and in the case of bad weather, customers will be contacted via email by midday on the day of the event with the postponed date of the screening.
If during setup or during the event the weather looks threatening, Pop-Up Cinema reserves the right to protect its own equipment by postponing setup/production. Pop-Up Cinema reserves the right to delay setup or to pause the production until suitable weather conditions exist.
During your event, our technicians will follow the weather report and keep you informed of any weather changes that would affect your event.
