The Drive-in is a unique viewing venue that is full of family fun. They are a perfect way to bring community together and celebrate.
Pop Up Cinema re-creates this nostalgic experience throwback by projecting movies on a giant, inflatable 50' screen, and broadcasting the sound to your car's FM radio while you watch from the comfort of your vehicle!
We pop the popcorn, chill the drinks and have lots of snack favourites at our canteen, or delivered directly to your vehicle for you to munch on while you watch a great family favourite film!
Pop Up Cinema offers two packages for Drive In theatres:

Choice of Film
The exhibition of movies requires a licence. We do not licence the film, we work with two different agencies who handle the rights to show non-theatrical movies in Canada.
We will help you select a movie, and obtain licensing for your event.
*Please note that due to COVID-19 films in Canada are difficult to obtain rights to. Not all titles are available as first run movies are not being released in theatres. There are restrictions on certain studios and are based on your proximities to a brick and mortar cinema.
When planing your event, please allow sufficient time to choose your movie. Wait until you have confirmation of licensing before announcing your film.
