I have been volunteering for the American Cinematheque since 1999. For my volunteer efforts, I get a free popcorn, a free drink, and I get to see free movies. This is my entertainment on a budget! I've met so many film makers by volunteering and working many events at both the Aero and Egyptian Theatres. The organization itself is very well-organized; the volunteer coordinator gives us plenty of notice to sign-up for events each month. I think very highly of this organization and am thrilled to recommend it to others as a way to network by vounteering and/or just making new friends.
Love the American Cinematheque!!! Preservation and one-of-a-kind promotion of film history, independent and alternative films and events. Film, art, creative interesting people, education...Couldn't find this anywhere else!
Great programming and guests, infectious energy. They're driven by enthusiasm and dedication to film, not just what will fill seats.
An LA cinema gem. Staff and volunteers bust their booties to bring rarely screened films, often in 35 or 70mm prints, to the big screens of the Egyptian and Aero Theatres. And that for a lower ticket price than most first-run movie houses. What other screen has films with/by George Pal, Clint Eastwood, Lillian Gish, Dolph Lundgren, Takashi Miike, Omar Sharif, and David Lynch projected upon it all within one month? Go! --Andie C.
Amazing movies at a totally acceptable price, and sometimes they're double features, too!
I got the chance to see some great films that otherwise I would have never seen on big screen.
Volunteering for them is a real pleasure, and is you're a film buff you'd be satisfied with the perks!
These people really work hard to offer film series and events that are always interesting and varied for any kind of audience.
This group does great work. They give the public the opportunity to see vintage films on the big screen in a restored art deco theater setting. The volunteers are helpful and freindly. Kudos
Volunteering with this organization has brought an immense amount of joy to my life. When I am not there, I think about being there. The American cinematheque has helped to restore the Egyptian theater to a beautiful and wonderful place. Furthering film for cinema-lovers everywhere.
The American Cinematheque is a great organization that makes sure that movies are preserved, and shown as they should be seen; on the big screen. I have been to many events over the years, and I have always had a wonderful time. The first time I saw "Citizen Cane" was there. The staff is wonderful and they all really care about movies.
