We wanted to let you know about a few changes in the cinema shifts for March. First up is that we have added a spot for each cinema shift this month. We know March was short on shifts so we wanted to add ushers wherever we could so you can stay busy! The spots are up now so please feel free to fill in any that aren’t filled yet.
We are also adding more duties for the students who work the cinema shifts. While the projectionists will still be in charge of the screenings, the students will be more like Student House Managers and you can go to them to help with any issues. They won’t be scanning unless we are short an usher. As for our usher placements, we will have two ushers (one at each door) scanning, one usher inside the venue, and one usher greeting.
Recently many ushers are finding trouble signing in and out on the upstairs tablet for screenings. If you have any problems with the tablet, please feel free to sign in and out at the usher locker room computer. If you have any problems signing in or out at either the usher locker room computer or the upstairs tablet please just email us your in and out times and we’ll take care of it.
Also please note that the screening shift times usually have an end time that is well after the movie has ended. We don’t expect you to stay for all this time, we just pad that out to account for any Q & As or other post screening events that could happen. So if you see that the shift ends at, let’s say, 10:30 PM but the movie ended at 9:00 PM, we expect you to clock out after your after-show duties are complete. So generally this will be about 15 minutes after the film ends. Hopefully that clears up some confusion and doesn’t add any!
Finally, in March our new ushers will be starting their first cinema shifts so please lend them a hand if needed. Thanks!
