Membership Manager sought by Hollywood Theatre

Deadline March 31, 2017

Do you have a passion for film and historic buildings and a background in fundraising and membership?

Working for the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon is much more than a job, it’s the pursuit of preserving history… and creating it. It’s a quest for restoring a historic movie palace while at the same time reinventing the “modern” movie theater as an artist-driven community center and mecca for film lovers. It’s creating the next great thing in film exhibition, be it a participatory experience such as B-Movie Bingo or chasing down that elusive 35mm or 70mm print of a lost classic.
