If the usual price of £3 per ticket is too expensive for you, you can always volunteer and watch any of our films for free! It's a great opportunity - not just for you to save some pennies, but also to help us out and keep the longest-running Student cinema in the UK running!
If you want to watch the occaisional free film, then ushering is your best bet - it requires a minimum amount of effort and you get to stay to watch the film you're volunteering at. Fire officers, house managers, projectionists and members of the committee get to see all films for free; these roles require more training and effort on your part, but are the best options if you're really keen to get more involved. They also have bonus perks, like access to the Film Unit office, invitations to Film Unit socials and a free +1 to any shifts you work.
Our projectionists are in charge of setting up the film and peripherals for every screening shown at Film Unit, mainly using our digital projector but also our 35mm projector where we can. You should be calm and collected, quick to learn and able to use your initiative.
Projectionists get to see all films for free and have a plus-one for each film they work; they also have the chance to be promoted to Chief Technical Projectionist or Chief Projectionist on the committee. We hire new projectionists once or twice a year, so look out for announcements on Facebook, at our shows or via the weekly newsletter. If you have any questions or want more information, feel free to email us!
