Our Story

The Pop-Up Movie tour is a traveling drive-in movie experience. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we offer socially distanced entertainment, complete with car side concession delivery. The founder, Michael Silver, is an experienced entrepreneur in the entertainment industry. He owns and operates GlowRage, a popular entertainment event on college campuses. When he had to cancel everything, he found himself searching for a way to provide safe, yet fun entertainment that would get people out of the house – The Pop-Up Movie Tour was born. He quickly formulated the event plan and was able to leverage connections and transition his existing staff to open the first location of the tour- the Pensacola Interstate Fairgrounds. The opening weekend quickly sold out with 400 cars were in attendance. We display the movies on giant inflatable movie screens and stream audio through a local station as well as an app to allow it to play through your car’s Bluetooth. We are currently also offering online concession ordering with car-side delivery. As we smooth out the kinks of this very new operation, we are excited to open ourselves up to new location requests and add the next couple of stops to our tour!
