Projectionists will be trained on the goings on behind the scenes of the theatre. Projectionists will learn lighting and sound management as well as troubleshooting in case of any movie emergencies. A mechanical aptitude is helpful, but certainly not required.
Projectionists must stay for the entire show, but do not participate in the set-up or take down of the movie itself. Projectionists get a free bag of popcorn and a drink to enjoy while on duty; they also receive a pass that entitles them and a guest to attend any regular show at no charge.
