Hastings is so lucky to have such willing and able folks who help us run every screening.

In return for volunteering with us, we have an active social calendar including regular volunteer get-togethers, pizza and movie nights, the famous annual Christmas Dinner, and a general affable atmosphere!

If you'd like to join the team, we ask that volunteers be available for two screenings a month. Please get in touch with Alan the manager by email, and he'll get back to you with more info as soon as he can.
