Job Description
We are looking for servers with barback or some bartending experience with an interest in learning how to make cocktails and bartend. Your primary duties will include assisting the bartender, pouring beers, cleaning glassware, stocking liquor and wine, and learning how to make our house and classic cocktails. This position includes, but is not limited to; taking and serving food orders for our bar patrons, accurate and consistent entries into the bar log book, maintaining a clean bar, lounge and work area, build rapport with our patrons, age and ID verification and ultimately provide a warm and welcoming environment to all Living Room Theater guests.

The Mission (is)Possible- CREATE GREAT EXPERIENCES!

Program It and They Will Come- We believe in the art of film. LRT uses this guiding principle to carefully select quality content in the hopes of exposing our patrons to a wider selection of movies than they would have at a large-chain cinema.

Be Good and They’ll Come Back- Movie goers, diners, vendors, information seekers, staff, co-workers, and management are all customers in our eyes. Treat them well, exceed expectations, make it right, and show gratitude. Everything about their experience should shout to them: We want you to come back, we love coming to work, and you enjoy working with us.

The Butterfly Effect- We know that everything we do has some sort of impact elsewhere. Natural materials in the theater, organic ingredients in the kitchen, and to purchase as much as we can locally as a company are just a few ways we reduce our footprint on the world.

Pay It Back, Pay it Forward- Our roots are planted in the local community, as you support us, we support you. LRT helps local filmmakers and film community, buys local ingredients and supplies, and pairs with sponsors that are deeply intertwined into the community at large and more.

Living (Room) on the Edge- We were the first designed from the ground-up all-digital independent theater in the country. Our technology enables filmmakers of all levels to distribute their independent film(s) to theaters across the country and expands the functions our theaters can offer; films, television broadcasts, music, and other materials can easily be shown in multiple Living Room Theaters locations.
