Volunteering At Amherst Cinema

There is a lot to do at Amherst Cinema, and we can always use some extra help!
A little bit of your time can make a big difference.

Our volunteer opportunities include:

Ushers
Check and tear tickets at theater entrances, greet patrons with a smile, and assist them to a seat if necessary. You may also help clean the theaters between busy rounds, and assist in simple tasks at the concession stand. To volunteer, contact: eward@amherstcinema.org

Circle of Friends
The Circle of Friends is a group of Amherst Cinema members who engage in specific activities that will strengthen the Cinema and help us achieve our goals. The Circle of Friends works in direct support of Amherst Cinema’s Development Department to support contributed income and membership income through direct solicitation and community outreach. To volunteer, contact: rhart@amherstcinema.org

See-Hear-Feel-Film Education Liaisons
On weekday mornings during the academic year, Amherst Cinema becomes an educational facility for over 1,200 Pioneer Valley third graders. Dozens of volunteers assist the students’ teachers and Jake Meginsky, our Education Specialist, in teaching literacy through media. A training session is required for first-time volunteers, and a minimum commitment of six 3-hour volunteer sessions during the academic year. For more information, visit amherstcinema.org/education.
