The Olympia Film Society’s Volunteer Community is the vital, beating heart of the organization. OFS Volunteers work to ensure the health and longevity of Olympia’s historic Capitol Theater by staffing the lobby, projecting the films, promoting the events, cleaning the facility and preserving it for future generations of film lovers in Olympia. The very existence of the Olympia Film Society and the Capitol Theater would not be possible without the efforts and support of our incredible volunteers.

The bedrock of our schedule week to week is our roster of REGULAR SHIFT VOLUNTEERS. Taking on a Regular Shift is one of the single greatest ways for a volunteer to contribute to the stability of Capitol Theater and the OFS mission. It is also the swiftest road to earning your membership and your Show Card, as well as making friends out of your OFS comrades. Below are the current openings in our regular roster – if any of these look like something you would like to take on, please contact the OFS Volunteer Coordinator and to arrange a TRAIN-IN session. We’ll start you right on the shift in question and supply you with experienced training oversight until you’re ready to fly on your own.
Aside from Front of House work, we also offer volunteer opportunities in Cleaning and Maintenance, Street Team and Promotions, and Film Projection. Please contact the OFS Volunteer Coordinator for more information!
