My job as a film crew member has me running around like crazy when I’m at work! So I feel like it’s important for me to let you know exactly what it is that I do, and hopefully shed some light so you understand just how hard our film crew actually works! So here are the four main spots film crew members work:
- Box Office: This is probably the first place you’ll encounter a film crew member. You can purchase or pick up tickets here and find out all the movies and showtimes we have. TIP #1: when you walk up to box office, speak clearly into the mic and say how many tickets you need, specify any adult or child’s tickets, and say what movie you are seeing. This helps us ring up your tickets quickly without having to ask you multiple questions to figure out what you need.
- Greeter: This where the ticket taker stands and tear your tickets. TIP #2: all you need to do is hand us your tickets and pay attention to which direction and theater we point you to. If you’re talking or trying to walk past me, chances are you’ll miss my directions and go to the wrong theater.
- Concessions: This is often the busiest spot for a film crew member mainly because we are running back and forth between taking your order and fixing your food. TIP #3: try know what you want to order before you get to the counter. It just makes the process go faster so you can get into your movie quicker.
- Usher: This is the crew member that basically clean up the entire theater. When a movie, they exit great and then go in and clean up all the popcorn and spilt drinks. They sweep the lobby and keep the bathrooms tidy. TIP #4: if you have any problems, the usher is the closest person who can stop and help you.
As a film crew member, I can work in any of these areas, which often keeps things new and interesting each shift. Sometimes it’s nice to have a greeter shift that’s not busy, and sometimes working in box office on a busy weekend makes me want to yank my hair out. But regardless working at the movie theater is one of the funniest jobs to have!
