In May 2019, Friends of Greenbelt Theatre installed a “Pop-up” cinema in the storefront next door to the historic cinema at 125 Centerway. The Pop-up at Greenbelt Cinema officially opened on July 3, 2019.

The Pop-up at the Greenbelt Cinema is a 40-seat microcinema, with a temporary buildout of draperies, plush chairs, and cup holders, combined with sound baffling and acoustic paneling to improve sound quality. The Pop-up will continue to operate through the 2019/2020 Oscar season so that we can get through this fall and winter movie bonanza with twice the films, twice the Oscar nominees, and twice the special programs.
