If you’ve got a burning question, this is where you’ll probably find the answer. If you don’t just e-mail us firstname.lastname@example.org.
My tickets haven't arrived
Login to your account and your tickets will be waiting for you in there.
How do I get my tickets?
An email should arrive in your inbox and that will provide a link to your pdf tickets. You can also access your tickets through your account.
Do I need to print my tickets?
Nope, as long as you've got it on your phone to flash you'll be able to get in.
Do you do group bookings?
The more the merrier! If there's a group of you coming (10+) get in touch and we'll do you a discount on the ticket price.
Can you help me with a special occasion?
First off, congratulations! Now that's out of the way, if you are celebrating a special occasion at Pop Up Screens do tell us and we'll try and help you make it extra special.
Can I bring the kids?
Children are more than welcome, but please remember all the films carry certificates so we can't let a 5 year old in to watch Fight Club no matter how little they’ll speak about Fight Club.
Sorry, but we only issue refunds on tickets if we cancel the screenings. What we can do though is swap your tickets for another screening so you don't miss out.
Are there toilets?
We have all the mod cons! There are toilets at all the screenings including facilities for disabled guests.
Is there an intermission?
We don't interrupt the movies with an intermission. There is food, drink and pop corn on sale throughout the movie though and all the stalls face the screen so you won’t miss anything.
What if it rains?
Rain Schmain! If it does rain we'll be ignoring it and continuing with the movie. If the weather is biblically awful (torrential rain or high winds) and we have to cancel the event, we'll give you replacement tickets for another one of our screenings. Keep an eye on the weather forecast and on our Twitter, we update fairly obsessively on the topic of weather.
If we can we will make an early call if the threat of rain seems too bad. All screenings really are subject to weather conditions.
Can I still get tickets to sold out movies?
Yes and no! Once the tickets are sold out online, they're all gone... but we do keep a limited number for the door so if you're desperate to come/haven't been organised enough/didn't know about the screenings if you arrive early you can still get in.
Are there tickets on the door?
There are tickets available on the door for the stragglers.
What should I wear?
It's worth bringing something warm to wear as even the hottest of days do cool in the evening.
What should I bring?
We appreciate any kind of gifts, but other than that there are only three Pop Up Screens essentials you need: (1) Something to sit on. (2) Something warm just in case. (3) Some good will as occasionally technology plays silly buggers with us, but we always get back on track. Other things that could be handy are torches, lanterns, socks or a waterproof.
Will there be parking?
We are in public parks, so there isn't any dedicated parking. When we choose our locations we always look for parks within walking distance of tube or train station so we recommend using that.
Is there any seating?
New for 2016 we now have seats! They're an extra £2 to hire for the evening and for that £2 you get a folding chair (unless you're buying a ticket for a screening in The Guildhall where a chair will be provided within your ticket price), but we do have a limited number each night. IF they sell out online, there won't be anymore available at the screening. As far as what you can bring to sit on we'd recommend blankets or camping chairs, but if you can carry it, then you can bring it!
What about a tent?
It may seem like a brilliant idea but unfortunately it's a no for tents too. We normally have a limited amount of space and once a tent is up it leaves all the space behind it dead for miles.
Can I bring my super cute dog?
Sorry but dogs (unless they're a guide dog or hearing dog) aren't allowed at the screenings. Please don't send us pictures of cute dogs asking if they can come, we're weak and could buckle!
What's the accessibility like?
All the parks are wheelchair accessible. If you have any additional needs then please get in touch and let us know how we can help you.
When we're indoors as we use quite unique locations there are sometimes issues with wheelchair access. Please contact us if you have any questions.
What time do you start?
We can only start projecting once the sun goes down, so we're entirely dependent on the mood of the big ball of fire in the sky as to when we can start. Our screening start times range from 8pm to 9.30pm. We do open earlier so you can come and enjoy the park, catch up with your mates and enjoy a drink or two before the movie starts.
Is there any food or drink?
We've got a decent bar selling draught beer, wine and cider and a few special surprises that take our fancy. On the food front we always bring a fantastic caterer with us, but they change week to week so check on the movie page to see who will be with us for the movie you're coming to. A movie isn't a movie unless you've got popcorn and we may have the best popcorn we've ever tasted, it's genuinely lovely, coming from the London Kettle Popcorn.
Can I bring a BBQ?
Sorry, but no BBQs. Open flames scare health and safety people.
I'm a vegetarian, is there food for me?
Yes! We have a lovely veggie option.
Can I hire a screen?
The British summer is short so as we run our own screenings most weekends from July to September the only time we'd be available for hire would be midweek. We're ok at hire, but to be honest you're better off contacting ProScreens or Future Projections as they're proper hire companies.
Do you do carer tickets?
If you're the registered carer for someone attending one of our screenings please contact us with the ticket number for the full price ticket and we'll issue you a free ticket.
The Special things around the Guildhall Screenings
We're doing screenings in The Guildhall this summer which is going to be awesome as it's in the heart of the City of London, but to add to it's awesomeness there will also be free seating for everyone, exclusive admission to the art gallery before the film starts and if you're coming to Gladiator you can come and have a look round the remains of an amphitheatre.
