Join the IU Cinema Usher Corps!

As a volunteer usher at the IU Cinema, you can see great movies, welcome guests, and get hands-on experience with day-to-day cinema operations. You can volunteer by yourself, or together with friends and family. Usher responsibilities include tearing tickets, showing guests to seats, distributing programs, ensuring guest safety (including emergency evacuations), and answering questions about the Cinema or the films. Volunteer ushers must attend a brief orientation session before their first shift.
