Pop Up Cinema is the partnership of Dimensions Entertainment and Big Entertainment. With over 20 years of community focused entertainment, these two companies are excited to offer the best outdoor movie experience around. 

It goes without saying that COVID-19 has posed challenges for communities and families alike. If all goes well, Pop Up Cinema hopes to “pop-up” family favourite movies and freshly-popped popcorn around the city all summer long.

Open-air Field Movies

Events happen in all sorts of weather conditions. Please dress accordingly for outdoor conditions, dress in layers, bring blankets (we have some for sale). If it is too wet, or reasonably uncomfortable to watch a film outdoors, we will announce either:

A) Cancelation of the event. All guests will receive an automatic refund to their payment method. Please note, while we process refunds immediately, your financial institution may take several days to post the refund. 

B) Postponement. If we can offer the film again in your neighbourhood we will make every effort to do so. in this case your ticket will be honoured for the new showing. If you can not make the new date, we will happily refund your ticket. 

Calls on outdoor films typically happen by 4 PM of event day. We make announcements on social media and on our website. 

In the unlikely event that we have to cancel an in-progress show, we will automatically refund a credit-card and debit purchases back to your card. If you paid cash, you will need to wait at the box-office for a refund if safe to do so. If it is unsafe to wait (which in this circumstance likely would be) we will announce a time and place to receive cash refunds.
