Looking For Drafthouse Entertainment Team Members
April 5, 2017
Hello there! My name is Craig Ries and I am the Interactive Programs Director for Alamo Drafthouse. My main job is creating and programming many of our special events and building/packaging these shows so they have successful runs at all of our theaters nationwide. I am also in charge of our Entertainment Team in Austin, which is the group of awesome people who host these events, and I am looking to expand this team now!
The Entertainment Team mainly hosts the Movie Parties and Video Dance Parties at all our Alamo locations, as well as help with Rolling Roadshow events, Special Guest Q&As (both in-person and through a live feed), and First Run Movie Premieres. I thought this would be an excellent opportunity for individuals interested in film and entertainment careers, and your university is the first place I'm looking.
This is a paid job and you would be compensated per show you host. I am looking for applicants that want to do this for more than just a semester, so this could be perfect for Sophomores and Juniors. The only requirement I can think of is you must be comfortable speaking and performing in front of large audiences. Everything else there will be training for.
I definitely encourage you to check out a show and see what it's all about before replying to me, but I can pretty much guarantee you are going to have a lot of fun working with a great company and being a part of original shows and content in Austin!

If you're interested, please send me a little information about yourself and why you think you would be a great host, and we can set up an interview from there.
Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you!!
