General stewarding duties including : Welcoming public to cinema, assisting with selling of tickets and refreshments, showing people to seats, tidying up at end of screening. In the event of an emergency assisting with the safe evacuation of venue.
It would also be useful if volunteers, as appropriate, could assist with the unloading of projection equipment and assembly of screen – under the supervision of projectionist. (This equipment is heavy so this role would not be expected of all volunteers).
