if im filming the movie with my camera am i getting arrested fo real?
Yeah this is pretty serious. Other people will snitch on you too. There have been a couple occasions where a guest tells us that they suspect someone filming. Never caught someone though.
Whats the best way to sneak into a movie?
Have a friend open the exit door or ask to use the bathroom but never come back out. Also simply buy your ticket and after the movie complain that your movie was shit or a baby was crying the whole time or something. I don't know if this holds true for all theaters, but at mine they will give you a free pass that's good for any movie. Btw, you can use this to get into a 3D or IMAX show for free since these passes are valid for anything. You can also just buy a ticket, don't go to the movie, then return it after the show time has passed. They will also give you a pass. As for movie hopping it's honestly hard to get caught unless you look suspicious, stand out badly, or you're in a big group. I'm pretty sure there are some lonely ass dudes who do nothing but watch movie after movie.
How much do you get paid hourly?
How often are raises?
Would you recommend working at a theater?
Started at 8 bucks. At my theater they review you every 6 months and if you do well they give you either a 15 or 25 cent raise. Currently getting paid $8.15. As for a recommendation, it's a good job but there are times where the amount of work you do isn't worth the amount of pay you receive. Also you are expected to work weekends and holidays which are the busiest times at the theater. But compared to other minimum waged jobs such as in retail or fast food it's much better. Used to work retail at Burlington Coat Factory which I couldn't stand. Theaters usually hire young people so most of the crew is chill.
Best way to sneak in is buy 1 ticket see 2 movies.
For the underagers, if you try at the box office you will get noticed.
Best way is to have a 17+ friend do recon and see what's playing near the R movie you want to see then sneak in after previews are over. But dont loiter around or be in a group that's what I look for when kicking people out.
Oh and if you make it in make sure you sit in the middle of a row between other people, less likely to be seen.
If the popcorn stale, ask them to make more. That stuf is like 1200% markup and cost the theater nothing to make.
What this guy says about popcorn is true. Don't be afraid to complain if your food isn't fresh. More often that not they will change it out for you or even give you your money back or a coupon.
If you are underage and sneaking in don't do it on a weekend night. There is security at the door of the auditorium and they will ask not for your ticket, but for your ID. Also just beware, ask any person who works at a theater, busting underage kids in rated-R movies is one of the best parts of the job. If you try to buy a rated-R movie but don't have ID and buy another movie, or just buy some dumbass movie when there's an obviously popular rated-R one, just know that the box office person will call it out on his headset and soon every person in the theater will have their eyes on you the whole time.
