    Donate your time to support your local cinema…be part of something special! ABOUT THE CINEMA: We are your local ‘micro cinema’! We receive no public funding and are staffed by a small team of (paid) managers, and local volunteers. Although we are small, we aim to be a resource for the whole of our local community: we run parent and baby shows, play Saturday morning kids films, matinees for older people and much more. We have Q + As with the people who make the films, and we also host discussion groups with the people who watch the films (you!). Our volunteers are absolutely vital to us, and are a big part of everything we do. …we also give 100% of our profits to charity! ABOUT THE CHARITY: The Sustainability Institute is an amazing project in Stellenbosch, South Africa. So far, our donations have gone towards a crèche built from local reclaimed materials (with places for 45 children from the surrounding area), their school for 475 local children, a community cinema, community vegetable garden for research into sustainable farming methods, and much more. Lynedoch is South Africa’s first eco village! South Africa is one of the most unequal societies in the world and it is education which will give the young people of Stellenbosch a better chance in life. WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO VOLUNTEER? You must be 18+. We are happy to take applicants from all over London, but it is advantageous if you live locally to Kensal Rise. We require a fortnightly commitment to an allocated shift, though we're happy if you can offer more! Depending on the film programme, a shift usually lasts 3 - 4 hours. Attributes we consider important to being a good volunteer are: Customer focus and a friendly manner Commitment Reliability Common sense Good initiative An interest in the charity work of The Sustainability Institute Fluent English We take volunteers from a variety of backgrounds, a range of ages and ethnicities, and do not discriminate. Volunteer duties include selling tickets & memberships, providing information about upcoming releases, raising awareness of the charity work we support, working behind the bar selling snacks and drinks, light cleaning and other front-of-house duties to help keep the cinema running smoothly.

The Lexi Cinema is a social enterprises, and give 100% of our profits to charity.
