Job Title
Head Chef/ Kitchen Manager

Job Description
Position: Head Chef
Department: BOH Management
Status: Full Time

Salary: 55k-60K DOE

The Head Chef holds the primary responsibility for all things kitchen. In a nutshell, this includes, but is not limited to; working the line, overseeing all food production and execution; including menu development, catering and special events, supervising and training staff, adhering to and maintaining portioning guidelines, interviewing and hiring staff, ordering food product and kitchen supplies, staff scheduling, staff performance evaluations, general filing, and other administrative duties, managing food and labor cost, ensuring food is expedited, facilitating regular staff meetings, and development of food specials.

The Mission (is)Possible- To engage our community through an exceptional cinema experience.

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- Moviegoers, 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 purchasing 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, support you. LRT helps local filmmakers and the 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 all-digital and only digital theater in the country. Our technology enables first-time directors and producers to distribute their independent films 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.
