Part-time, up to 30 hours per week; Non-Exempt; $15/hr

Position Summary

The CCA Cinematheque is one of Santa Fe’s longest-running non-profit arthouse movie theaters—showcasing the best in global cinema to a discerning audience. We are currently seeking two Cinema Hosts for our two-screen complex, which also features an internationally renowned gallery space. We seek responsible, hard-working, ethical individuals who have a passion for film and culture. We need people who understand and appreciate how our mission statement of arts, humanities, and sciences fosters a vibrant and healthy community.

Cinema Hosts would be responsible for the person-to-person connection that makes our cinema-going experience stand out. Not only will you handle ticket and concessions sales; you will be introducing the films in person before each screening. We are not simply trying to wedge as many showtimes as we can into a day—we want people to experience a holistic and cathartic theater experience and that starts with you. Other job duties include maintaining a high standard of cleanliness, adhering to COVID safety protocols, and learning on-the-job technical skills: including scheduling and projecting films the way they’re meant to be screened.

Candidates should be passionate about film and film history, believe in fostering teamwork and flexibility in the workplace, and have fun being a good host—making every screening special. Ideal candidates will have previous customer service or film experience. Given the nature of the job, these positions require evening, weekend, and holiday availability. For now, we are able to offer part-time positions up to 30 hours a week. Free movies, concessions, and gallery tickets are included.
