As an independent, nonprofit, art house cinema, a/perture relies on the support of our community. We’re looking for a team of engaged volunteers who can enhance the member experience by serving as onsite ushers and greeters during the check-in process – we’re calling these volunteers a/ttendants.

 

What to expect:

  • 2.5 hour shift from either currently from 4:30-7pm or 7-9:30pm on Friday and Saturday, or 1-3pm or 3-7pm on Sundays. We will be adding more shifts as the program gains volunteers.
  • Being on your feet before showtimes, whether standing or walking.
  • Greeting and welcoming patrons as they arrive.
  • Engaging in conversation with patrons as they wait in line for Tickets / Concessions.
  • Expediting check-in process for patrons by ensuring members who already have their tickets and are waiting to be seated upon arrival are not unnecessarily waiting in the Tickets / Concessions line.
  • Ushering patrons to designated theatre.
  • Ensuring Tickets / Concessions line organized in the lobby.
  • Wearing a Black or White shirt colored shirt (not dressy, suggested not required).
  • Wearing a name tag.
  • Working under the direction of cinema staff.
  • Being responsible for your own transportation and parking. (We suggest parking behind Benton Convention Center at corner of 6th St. and Cherry St.).
  • Providing shift cancellation notice a minimum of 24 hours prior to shift.

 

What’s in it for you?

  • One ticket voucher per each completed 2.5 hour shift.
  • Community Service hours for students (in lieu of ticket voucher if necessary).
  • No commitment – Volunteer as often as you’d like.
  • Assist with exclusive special events.
  • Contributing to the success of the local arts community.
