Front-Of-House Volunteers



Salary: Expenses

Screen25 is an independent community cinema in the heart of South Norwood. We offer a welcoming space for audiences to come together as a community and enjoy the latest independent and mainstream films, enhanced by Q&As, panel discussions, shorts and much more!

We’re planning our re-opening in January 2021, with a new venue, and continuation of our twice-weekly events on Wednesdays and Fridays (approx. 5.45pm – 10.45pm).

You do not need to have any specific experience for the front-of-house roles like ushering or managing the box office, but you should be enthusiastic and eager to learn about the different roles involved in running a community cinema.

Each volunteer should be able to commit to at least 5 hours every month – the equivalent of one shift at the cinema. In addition there is also a chance to represent the cinema at local markets and community events, perfect if you love meeting people and being involved in your local community!

All volunteers will be asked to attend an induction session before their first shift, which usually lasts around 1 hour, and includes shadowing an existing volunteer who can show you the ropes.

  • The chance to watch the film you’re shifted to work at;
  • Unlimited free tickets to screenings when you are not on shift (subject to availability);
  • An opportunity to get involved behind-the-scenes and attend meetings and seasonal volunteer social events;
  • Skill development and training in different aspects of cinema exhibition (from programming to marketing);
  • Food and travel expenses, where needed;
  • The much coveted Screen25 t-shirt and tote bag combo!

We let volunteers provide their availability with the scheduled programme made available – meaning, if it’s free, you can choose which event to volunteer at based on the film that’s showing that evening!
