We love our Volunteers

We are thankful to have some great community volunteers who have made a real impact on how our shows are run every single day.  For each show, we rely on our volunteer ushers to help take tickets, answer patron questions and help clean our theater during quick turnarounds.

As a 365 days a year nonprofit arts organization, there are daily opportunities for enthusiastic helpers. We would love to have you join the team!

"If you're passionate about film or movies, there's no better place to be than FilmScene. There is no other theater in the area where I can see indie, foreign, or (occasionally) repertory films. I've seen 93 movies from 16+ different countries, movies as old as 1931 and movies released this year, animated movies, dramas, comedies, westerns, sci fi, horror, documentary. This is why I continue to volunteer, why I have volunteered for a year, and why I am a member on top of that.”
