Volunteer at the New Parkway

When we opened the New Parkway in December of 2012, we were fortunate to have had the help of many local volunteers to help us paint, build, and design our awesome space. Now that we are three years old, we can always use some extra hands.

We offer a few types of volunteer opportunities.  Supporting general operations includes helping with ticket-taking, directing patrons inside the theater and helping to clean theaters at the end of busy screenings. Most shifts will last from 3-5 hours and you’ll often be wined and dined during your shift.  For those who like to make a difference in the background we have drop in volunteer hours every first Saturday from 8:30am to 11:00am; RSVPs are required.  Saturday projects will vary and may include sewing, stuffing bean bags, building, sanding, painting, fixing items, organizing, planting and other fun activities.  If you have a specialized skill set such as electrical, plumbing, general contracting, metal work, A/V prowess, video making and so on, please let us know, we can use your skills!

This is a great opportunity to meet other locals interested in film, surround yourself with an eclectic and interesting crowd, and support your local theater in our efforts to bring you the best food and film we can! If you’re interested, please send an email to for more information.
