Opotiki DeLuxe Theatre


Opotiki’s Deluxe Theatre is more than just a cinema.

The Opotiki Community Theatre Trust are always seeking more volunteers and we have perks to make it worth your while! More volunteers are required to enable more showings of movies to the general public of Opotiki and we need more people to help-out especially during the weekend and during the school holidays.

As of February 2017, we have 19 volunteers on our books and we plan to increase the social benefits of the volunteer work. We will have more social functions and we will be more inclusive. For volunteers, there is also the added benefit of a free movie after a couple of shifts!

We have both Front-of House volunteer positions as well as background volunteer positions. Experience is not required as we provide all the necessary training. You will be shown how to scoop ice cream, run the popular pop-corn machine and how to operate our user-friendly EFTPOS system.

For the technically minded person/s, you can also upskill to become a projectionist. So effectively, you could learn the entire running of a movie theatre and gain the skills required for gaining employment in a movie theatre in 'the big smoke'.

  • No experience at all required
  • All relvant training provided
  • Open to Opotiki residents
  • Giving back to the community
  • Voluntary service rewards given
  • Upskilling opportunities
