As an independent, nonprofit, art house cinema, a/perture relies on the support of our community. We're looking for a team of engaged volunteers who can enhance the cinema experience by serving as ushers & greeters, assisting with special events, sold-out screenings, and off-site events in the community. Occasionally, we may also need help around the office, getting ready for our annual fund drive, or promoting our events.
These opportunities vary, and our schedule is flexible to fit your availability! For each 2.5 hours you volunteer, you'll receive a movie voucher for general admission at a/perture cinema!
We recommend that new volunteers join us for one of our monthly volunteer orientations to get started. These orientations are typically only an hour long and include a behind-the-scenes tour of the theater.
Please contact Alex Muller to find out when the next orientation is, or if you'd like to learn more: firstname.lastname@example.org
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About a/perture cinema
311 W 4TH ST, WINSTON SALEM, NC 27101, US
a/perture cinema’s mission is to engage and entertain the community through the art of film by showcasing informative, educational, thought-provoking and inspiring films - films that enrich our lives, engage our minds, promote diversity and build community
In January 2010, a/perture cinema opened as a small two-screen art house cinema with the purpose of showcasing independent, foreign, documentary, local and festival films. At the time of opening, a/perture became a destination for non-commercial and artistic films that were not offered elsewhere in Winston-Salem and the surrounding communities. Located in the heart of downtown Winston-Salem, a/perture revived the theatrical experience in the central business district. Over the past seven years, a/perture has become a space to enjoy and celebrate art on film while fostering social capital and shared experiences. In 2013, a/perture expanded to add two additional screening rooms and now on an annual basis provides the community a home for more than 4,000 film screenings and events per year, with over 700 titles screened to date. a/perture is open 365 days a year.
Downtown Winston-Salem Community Cinema (DWSCC) was formed June 23, 2016, to assume operations of a/perture cinema. DWSCC will continue and expand a/perture’s mission and as a non-profit cultural entity, DWSCC will be better equipped to work for and respond to the community directly with programming and community initiatives that connect audiences to the world at large and fostering conversations with filmmakers and audience members.
