About 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.
