PopCon PopUps represent a new way to organize our community and celebrate pop culture in a fun event that welcomes fans of all ages and backgrounds. Fans can experience an uplifting range of films that have become cultural classics and have left an indelible mark on our society and relive their original debut and release in a unique theatrical experience that blends the fun of watching film with the fun of networking and enjoying one’s community.

Our PopCon PopUps will spring into life and invite a festival-like atmosphere for an evening or two, then vanish without a trace only to appear somewhere else where fans crave cultural engagement. Watch for PopCon PopUps to visit your town and don’t miss it when your opportunity arises!

PopCon PopUps are family-friendly, social events that bring you movies like you’ve never experienced them before. Be ready! PopCon PopUps are coming to YOUR town!

Event FAQS / find your answers

Volunteers are always available to assist disabled audience members as required. Please let us know of any requirements you may have in advance, by using our contact form so we can welcome and assist you to the best of our ability. It is worth noting that our outdoor screenings tend to be on grass and access is sometimes across park land but our volunteers can help you get across any rough ground if necessary.
Unfortunately we cannot admit dogs to our screenings, out of consideration for the comfort and enjoyment of all our audience members. Service dogs are permissible in accordance to national and local laws.
Not usually, so please bring your own chairs and seating. Please see individual event listings for specific details. You’re welcome to bring your own seats and chairs to most other outdoor events, but please be aware that you may be asked to sit at the side or the back to avoid blocking other people’s view of the screen.
At most outdoor venues you are free to bring your own food and drink, including alcohol [see individual listings]. Alternatively, avoid the hassle and enjoy some of our delicious on-site catering instead, or do a bit of both!  Alcohol is usually permitted but please drink responsibly… Please also remember to use the garbage cans provided or take your litter home – thanks.
Yes, but maybe think out a parking strategy prior to coming.  Off-road parking is not usually available at our outdoor venues, though there may be parking nearby. We recommend using public transport where possible and planning ahead.
In the event of wet weather, the screening will still go ahead – our events are a bit like a mini festival so keep this in mind when getting ready – please check the forecast in advance and come dressed accordingly! Remember to bring warm (maybe also waterproof!) clothing and a blanket if you wish, as it does get cool towards the end of a screening. Only in the case of extreme weather, such as dangerously high winds, will the screening be cancelled. Unfortunately we cannot give refunds if it rains.
Bring warm clothes, layers and blankets as it can get very cool towards the end of a screening. If the forecast looks a bit iffy, pack some waterproofs just in case.

No, the film will run straight through. At most events there will be refreshments on sale throughout the film.
Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds on ticket purchases, except when we have had to cancel an event. You can, however, reallocate your tickets to someone else if you can no longer attend a screening you have bought tickets for.  Use our contact form to begin that process.
We welcome families to films suitable for everyone in the group – just like at a regular cinema. The classification of each film is clearly marked and we are legally obligated to not admit anyone who appears to be under the age stated, so please use the classification ahead of booking to determine whether it is appropriate for your whole family. Please ensure that your children are accompanied by an adult at all times and that they do not disturb other audience members during the screening. Children aged 14 and under count as reduced tickets.  Children 5 and under can come for free!
If you are planning to bring a group to a PopUp PopCon Cinema event, please get in touch with us by using our contact form. We offer discounted tickets to groups of 10 or more booking together - contact us for options for your group or organization!
