Join our Team!

The Nelson Civic Theatre Society was founded in 2012 to revive and operate The Civic Theatre. It is through the support of a dedicated community of over 2,000 members and the gifts and sponsorship of so many local businesses and individuals that we are up and running now.

As a non-profit society, we rely on the following to support our day-to-day operations:

  • Ticket sales
  • Concession sales
  • Society membership renewals
  • Sponsorship
  • Advertising

Why Volunteer At The Civic?

It is because of the commitment made by volunteers that The Civic Theatre is now open and screening films. Our volunteers continue to play significant parts in our day-to-day operations and patron services, as well as in our governance, marketing, fundraising, and other administrative capacities.

More than 180 volunteers have contributed approximately 5,000 hours of time to us in the last year alone. We deeply value the time, skill, and enthusiasm that we receive from our volunteers every day. Their continued support is critical to the success of our organization.

Volunteering at The Civic Theatre is a wonderful way to meet people, learn new skills, and support your local non-profit independent cinema.

Some of our volunteer positions include:

  • Ushering
  • Membership sales
  • Assistance at special events and fundraisers
  • Office support and many other unique projects

Celebrating Our Volunteers

Volunteers have been central in our work to re-open the facility, grow our programming, and continue our vision to diversify our space and offer a valuable amenity to our community. We are grateful to our volunteers for continuing to believe in our vision and contribute their time, energy and enthusiasm towards our organization and our goals.
