To sum it up, it isn't the most high end theater in town. But it is a true Pensacola tradition. I grew up going to the silver screen as a kid. It isn't the fancy or high end at all, but it is humble and comfortable. For me ,that is all I want when I go to see a great... More

No longer in business - this theater closed although the building is still there. The comfortable and relaxed seating will be missed.

It was unique, probably one of the last of its kind. Maybe someone will buy it and reopen as new. Perhaps if anything is done with the old mall nearby it could get more people back to that area.

OMG!! All of the people whom put a good review about this place obviously have no taste. First and foremost the place was extremely hard to find even by GPS. Secondly....well instead of naming them in this order because there were so many bad things to say bout this place, I'm just going to list them: --The place was dirty... More

They are closed. They use the traditional 35mm film, and it is too expensive to convert the equipment over. They have always been a great place To go with children, and I am glad we got one last visit in. We are very said to see this icon leave us

I've been here 2 times since moving to Pensacola. The first time it took about 2 minutes of driving around to find, the second time it was about 10 minutes. I really enjoy the reasonable ticket prices, especially since 3 and under us still free, and the option of drinking an adult beverage. There is a Strong greasy smell that... More

My feet stuck to the floor, theater had a terrible smell, and the people working the concession were clueless and slow. The concession stand was the worst part. I ran out during the movie to grab a drink, no one was in line, lobby was empty so it was fairly obvious I was in the middle of a movie. I... More

I love independent businesses. I only patronize chains if a local business does not have what I want. The Silver Screen is a bit different. Here is a place to order bar food and watch a movie. The number one thing that keeps this place going is the fair prices for their goods and services. Not all the food is... More

Six friends went to see Identity Thief at the Silver Screen because we enjoy the casual atmosphere and availability of Adult Beverage. We all had a good time but found the actual theater we were in smelled like a moldy basement. Seats & tables were clean and comfortable. Please fix the mold problem

What other theater can you go and sit down for pizza and a beer and watch a great flick for super cheap prices?! Nowhere!!! Love this place! We go as often as possible :) Entertainment for the whole family and everyone that works there is super friendly.
