Who can take part?

Individuals, Companies, University Societies, Charities, Film Clubs, Agencies, Venue Managers, Families, Grandmothers, Grandmasters, all are welcome.

What kind of venue can I screen in?

Museums, meeting rooms, pubs, football clubs, offices, village halls, schools, universities, shops, parks, pretty much anywhere can be a screening venue if you think sideways. We've had all sorts... even polytunnels.

Do I need a special license?

No, we provide you with the license rights to screen the film.

When can I screen the film?

You can screen as soon as films are released in cinemas in order to take advantage of the promotion for the film’s general release. Or if you want to screen the film before it hits the cinemas, please e-mail mark@popupcinema.net

When can I book the film?

As soon as it appears on the Popup Cinema website. This can potentially be months before the film’s release meaning you have plenty of time to integrate your screening into the film’s nationwide campaign.

What equipment do I need?

We provide you a special screening DVD of the film a week before the screening date. It’s up to you to source a projector unless the venue already has one.

Can I screen on another format other than DVD?

Upon request we can supply blu-ray, digital formats and DCP.

Can I keep the DVD?

Screeners for all catalogue and premiere film bookings must be returned to the Popup Cinema Office. Details on the order. We will provide you a return envelop to send back the disk to our office. Any additional screenings should be licensed through the Popup Cinema website.

What experience do I need?

No experience necessary! You just need a venue which can hold a public screening and a little saviness to fill it. Remember, your screening will have the support of the film’s national PR and marketing campaign behind it which is a great asset to generating an audience.

How much does it cost?

Here’s our UK pricing structure for screening films. Fees are per screening and prices include UK VAT (deducted for screenings outside EU). Prices vary for territories outside the UK.  

    What to do if the DVD is faulty?

    Having checked the film in full before your screening, if you notice a fault, you will need to re-book a replacement copy. Please contact Popup Cinema, who will then book a replacement copy of the film for you on the condition that the original screening copy is returned immediately. If Popup Cinema is not notified of a faulty film prior to the screening date, full flat fee will apply.

    Where should I return the DVD? 

    To prevent unauthorized distribution or screening of the film without a valid license, we urge you to return the screener within 7 days after the screening to Popup Cinema via recorded delivery to:

    Popup Cinema
    23a Packington Street, London, N1 8QB
    United Kingdom

    Please note that any additional screenings of the film must be licensed through the Popup Cinema website.
