We need volunteers for the many aspects of setting up and running our shows. This includes:
No experience is required. Training will be provided.
We ask that volunteers commit to attending at least 2 shows per month (between September and May).
Both student and mature volunteers are most welcome to volunteer at the cinema. You must be at least 14 years of age to volunteer. Volunteering counts towards the 40 hours of volunteer time required for high-school graduation.
We welcome students who wish to gain experience working in the community helping at the Ottawa Family Cinema in areas of their interest. The cinema is a fully operating movie theatre and is run in a professional yet friendly manner. This is a volunteer job but one that should be taken seriously. Experience here will provide you with knowledge and reflect well on you if you perform to the best of your abilities. Punctuality, reliability, and a willingness to pitch in and help are key elements to a successful time in obtaining your community hours with the Ottawa Family Cinema.
You are responsible for keeping track of your hours in the Volunteer Book which is kept at the front desk. When you need your hours certified just let the Volunteer Coordinator or a manager know so the form can be completed and signed.
You must remain on the property while signed at the cinema. If you have to leave before the end of your shift for any reason, you must inform the volunteer coordinator or a manager and sign out. You must sign back in again if returning the same day. Bring a lunch for Saturday movies, Friday evenings there will be pizza, provided free by the cinema.
We will give references for future work experience.
All volunteers are to arrive by the following times unless special arrangements are made:
Also important is a willingness and availability to stay until the end of the show and to help with take-down on Saturday afternoons.
Dress code is important... Black pants (not jeans), white shirt (black shirt for projection team) with collar. Shirt must be tucked in.
