What does the Job Involve?

Almost all cinema employees are cross-trained in all aspects of operations. Work duties include selling tickets and concessions, taking inventory, usher duties and general cleaning including
sweeping auditoriums between shows. Some employees are also trained upstairs in the booth to operate the movie projectors. Most employees favorite “job perk” (as you might expect) is that you get FREE ADMISSION to movies anytime!

What are the Hours?

We usually can schedule around your church, family, and school activities (sports, band, etc.). But, we are open 365 days a year so you will have to work some weekends and holidays. Typically new employees start out at 2-3 days a week and average 12-15 hours. More experienced workers can select up to 4 (even 5) days a week but they rarely work more than 32 hours a week.

When school is “in session” the cinema is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 to 11:30 but most employees go home by 9:30 On weekends (Fri & Sat) the cinema is open from 1:30 to 11:30.

Most employees work a “split-shift” (Example: 1:30 - 4:30 and 6:00 to 9:30 (Off from 4:30 - 6:00). When school “is out” (all Summer, Christmas, Easter & Thanksgiving) employees typically work a “split shift”
