We may earn money when you click our links. Summer of Cinema Dream Job

Apply to be’s Chief of Cinema, where you’ll earn $2,500 to watch five movies of your choice at a theater this summer.

Get paid $2500 to watch movies

Did you know that only 7% of Americans prefer watching movies at a theater? Why, though? How do the comfort of home, cheaper snacks, and a pause button for pee breaks beat escaping into a well-told story that plays out on a towering silver screen with top-notch surround sound?

There’s magic in going to the movies, folks, and wants to help you rekindle it—or, possibly, experience it for the first time. We’re hiring one person to watch five movies in a theater this summer. We’ll give you a sweet title—Chief of Cinema—buy your tickets and pay you $2,500 so you can afford popcorn.

That’s 500 bucks per movie, or roughly 50 times the price of admission per film. We know you’re in for that kind of money, so let’s review a few things before we make your entry official.

Who should apply?

The ideal candidate for the Chief of Cinema position must love movies. You’ve probably wondered how to get paid to watch movies at some point in your life. But don’t worry if the thought never occurred to you; you can still apply.

Oh, yeah—you should also be 18 years of age and a United States resident.

What will you get?

Mostly cash money. Okay, only cash money—probably (definitely) in check form. How much money? Twenty-five hundred bucks ($2,500), plus the cost of five movie tickets. Again, that’s more than $500 per film, which is way more than movie critics earn (and we can personally vouch for that fact).

What’s the job?

The Chief of Cinema’s duties are simple: You gotta watch five (5) movies in a real-deal movie theater by August 31, 2024. The theater can be an air-conditioned megaplex, a stuffy arthouse with no A/C, or a nice, open-air drive-in—as long as you had to buy a ticket.

What will you watch?

Whatever you want. Blockbusters, new releases, indies, classics—any feature-length film playing at a theater on the silver screen—by August 31, 2024. Here’s a list of upcoming new movies to help you plan. Any commercial theatrical screening works, though.

Note: Film festival screenings count, but we’ll reimburse you only for the average cost of a movie ticket—not the festival pass.
