The Silver Screen Theatre, Pensacola's premier affordable movie theatre, located behind University Mall, is Escambia county's only locally owned and operated movie theatre. It is also Escambia county's longest running movie theatre. It was opened in 1982 as Pensacola's most unique single-screened theatre. In 1983, it was twinned, and in 1996 two more huge screens were added. The theatre is unique and fun for all ages.
In addition to popcorn, soft drinks and candy, the theatre has an expanded food and drink menu, including such items as espresso drinks, gourmet pizza, chicken wings, shrimp, chicken tenders, hamburgers, nachos, french fries, even spirits such as mixed drinks, wine & beer,....At our theatre, you can actually enjoy "Dinner + a Movie" at an affordable price. Our "Dinner & a Movie" special every night is only $11. This includes a recent movie, an entree of your choice, and a medium soft drink or a 12 oz. draft. When's the last time you went to a restaurant and seen a movie? Never, unless you've been to The Silver Screen! Instead of using conventional bolted-down seats, we offer movable comfortable chairs and tables--yes, you can actually eat a pizza at a table while viewing a current movie. Come try it for yourself! With movable chairs, "there's never a head in the way". Purchase of food is not necessary to view a movie.
