From selling the popcorn before the lights go down to sweeping it off the floor when they come back up, we rely on our volunteers to deliver a great experience with every Carbon Arc screening. We are always glad to welcome helping hands and fresh faces who want to contribute.

We want to hear from you if you're interested in working at a screening, or helping in other areas like promotion, marketing, graphic design — anything you can think of!

What you'll Get

For each screening you participate in, you'll be rewarded with:

  • Free admission to the film
  • Free popcorn and a drink to enjoy while you watch
  • An opportunity to learn about how a non-profit cinema operates
  • Quality time with tons of other Halifax film lovers

Getting Involved

Your support for Carbon Arc has been overwhelming! We're currently at capacity for volunteers, but don't worry. As more spots open up, we'll be sure to announce it so you can nab your chance to be a part of the magic.


Carbon Arc is a non-profit cinema. While ticket sales allow us to continue programming our existing film series, our dream is to keep growing in order to bring Halifax the best in cinema: a wider global selection, compelling retrospectives, diverse festivals, and more.

The generosity and support of our community enables that dream.
