Hi I just found this thread and yes I have TONS of questions I hope that can get answered based on my experience dealing with my local theater and it's GM. -My local Regal IMAX theater began having a lot of issues in the IMAX Auditorium. I first noticed it during that preview IMAX showing of Inhumans IMAX. The rear right speaker would distort often throughout the film and the same issue occurred with other films including "IT". Each time it happened I reported it and management of duty said that probably "Dunkirk damaged the speaker as it was a loud movie..." and they would give me an IMAX readmit pass. I got so fed up that (because that wasn't the only issue with that IMAX) I actually reported it to IMAX HQ and IMAX HQ responded quickly to the QA issue. By the time Justice League came around the issue was fixed and I was happy...however.. The issues I have encountered last year with that IMAX pushed me to the point that I actually had to report it directly to IMAX after dealing with the theater. These issues include: Kong Skull island IMAX 3d: someone forgot to activate the 3d projector (according to management's explanation) so the first 10 mins no one's 3d glasses worked..a bunch of us had to run out and report it or thought our 3d glasses were defective. Some guests were so angry they got refunds. GotGv2: They played Fate of the Furious instead of the movie.. man people got up quick for that one to report it to the employees. How do you mess that one up? Justice League IMAX to any film currently playing in that theater in IMAX: Although they fixed the audio issue, guess what the GM did? She instituted a policy to keep the house lights up during the entire movie. I reported it and guess what her response was over email? It was to check to see if guests are drinking alcohol!?!?!!?! No other auditorium in that location has the lights up. How can I verify this policy or report this to Regal HQ. The lights have been lowered a bit since my reporting but they are still kinda distracts from the visual presentation of the screen. -Is it true that if Concession stand employees get penalized if they don't get every customer to upsize their drinks/soda? Meaning they get their hours cut similar to Retail if customers don't sign up for the store credit cards. I just feel that when I politely say no the look I get from them indicates that I just sentenced them to death. I only upsize for big movies like Pacific Rim, RP1, Avengers...not for smaller movies. -If I see someone actually recording a movie on their cell can I report it to the theater employees discretely? I saw this happen during "Unsane"... ugh. -Why doesn't management help out concessions staff when there is a big rush? I rarely see any manager actually helping my theater there is only one or two people behind the counter when it gets busy. -According to one of the managers I spoke to, she says that some managers stay as late as 2:30am while the rest of the employee's go home....what causes managers to stay late? -In auditorium 3 of that theater, every movie played on that screen is presented in pillbox mode. I reached out to management about this and various managers gave various answers ranging from, "I don't know", to "That's how the movie is presented", to the "the movie is presented FLAT"..yet I can never get a straight answer.. It only happens in that particular screen. What can I do to get that screen issue resolved if the GM isn't doing anything about it? -In the last few weeks I have been noticing certain managers just hanging out in plain clothes just staring at people.. What are they looking for? They are sure acting like security yet they have one guy for security in the theater. -Does Regal HQ ever look into those survey's that are on the receipts and ever get on the case of the GM if there is repeated issues? Sorry for the long questions, but any answers would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm glad to help! With the IMAX issue, I can only assume they had some trouble with repairing and installing a speaker. It does take a long time and a lot of equipment to take down those speakers, and reconnect them. Not to mention expensive. I mean, the cardboard standee for the 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' took about ten hours to make, so you can imagine how difficult it could be to do that. The fact that it took them so long is a little outrageous, and I definitely would have gotten on management too. For GotGv2, it happens. When black panther came out, we accidentally played it instead of Hostiles... a day before it came out. It was a simple resolution, the projector just sometimes gets mixed up. We have it all automated, and we set the schedule. Sometimes the projector will mix a few up by accident, but we still will always get you the movie you pay for. To report anything to Regal HQ, you can always call 1-877-TELL-REGAL. You may also go to if you prefer email discussion. It's true that we get penalized for not offering, but as long as we offer, we'll be okay. Decline away my friend! Most of us don't really care if you buy the large or not, we just don't want to be overheard by a manager (Or sometimes corporate) and get chewed out for not doing it. Recording is a crime, and the last person at my theater was arrested on the spot. If you can find security, you should immediately tell them, and they will be escorted out of the building. Otherwise, find the Usher (They'll have a cleaning cart or an orange light) and tell them who it is, the seat number if you have it, and a description of the person. Sometimes managers will help but most often they are helping guests or preparing the food in the kitchen. When they aren't doing either of those things, they might be on break or might even be on the phone. When they have downtime, they usually help concessions as that is the busiest, or floor staff (Ushers) as it is the most continuous. Yes, some managers do stay as late as 2:30. At my theater, we do have some employees stay that late as well. It isn't uncommon for the last movie to get out at 12:00 AM or even 1:00 AM. Even so, we need to ensure that concessions is absolutely perfectly clean, everything is stocked up, and everyone is done with their work. Most often the theater will fully close (All employees gone) at about 1-2:30 AM. If it is only in auditorium 3, then you should be sure they know that you have visited several times with the issue. You can ask box office to tell you what theater it is in beforehand, and then choose another movie until a different time. If that movie stays in three, the best option might be just to buy it or settle. Now I hadn't heard about that. Most managers do get free movie tickets, so maybe they're there to see a movie and are just ensuring everything is okay. I've never heard of managers sitting and staring at people, that sounds... odd, must be a new situation for your theater. I'm not 100% sure if Regal HQ does that, but sometimes out of nowhere my GM will be extremely strict with certain rules seemingly out of nowhere, so I can only assume corporate contacted her for one reason or another, those receipts might be to blame. I'm glad to answer any questions you have! Let me know if you have any more, and I would try my best to answer you

How about people that drink or smoke in the theatre ? I remember way back as a teenager going to the classic 18 plus comedy movies just getting trashed in the theatre Proceeding to destroy the bathrooms , at one point the employee simply asked us are you guys done yet . At this point we were and said yes and just walked out ... The theatre and manager was so gutless

There are quite a few people who drink for sure, but not many smokers. While some people do smoke, I find chewing tobacco more often than cigarettes.

Do theaters actually care if people smuggle in their own food?

If a manager sees you do it, then yes, but it's not really a big deal. We make all of our money from concessions, which is why managers panic, but we're the little guys on the totem pole. Hell, I still sneak food into the theater. I suppose the biggest thing is it really depends on the person. With me, if you're holding starbucks in front of me, I'll tell you to throw it out. But (I have to do bag checks, it's unavoidable) if I check a bag or a purse and see five boxes of milk duds, I don't really care. Just don't make it obvious.

I'm 18 and looking for a job so a movie theater gig doesn't sound bad. 1. Which do you prefer: Regal or AMC (for movie watching) 2. Free food or movies on the job? 3. Have you made friends with your coworkers? 4. Was the interview tough or easy? 5. Do you enjoy the job?

* 1: Definitely Regal. The AMC near here has very uncomfortable seating, plus Regal has a much better value when it comes to concessions * 2: While it used to vary, it is now linked into the Regal app (Making me assume it is standard condition for these benefits). Most theaters let you have two free movie tickets per day, as well as free popcorn and drinks (With your own container) and 50% off of all other concessions. * 3: I have made quite a few friends. Most of the people there are very friendly, as it is in the job description. * 4: The interview was very easy. They asked things like 'What movie did you see last?' 'What is your greatest strength?' 'What motivates you every day?'. * 5: It's a lot of cleaning, but at it's core it is very fun. Some of the work they make you do is pretty boring, but it's very enjoyable and the free movies is definitely a good plus

I'm assuming all the projectors are digital now days for a chain like that? What skillset does a modern projectionist need, if any, other than rebooting a PC, loading up the file and hitting Play?

The projectors we have are all digital. A modern projectionist (At our theater, it's handled by the managers, but it's still the same job) would have one large (And long) room that has all of the projectors. Each projector is wired to a computer, and the projectors themselves are nothing more than very large hard drives. The movies first need to be downloaded online, which is done automatically. Then theaters are e-mailed encryption keys, so they may properly play the film with no issues. The computer has an automatic scheduling system, so the movies play automatically. Next to each projector is a sound rack with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. We use these to process the volume of the film and generate the sound properly. We also adjust the volume using these (Whenever a guest asks). For 3D movies, you also need to put a polarizing film onto the projector, and focus it just right, or else it won't work properly and the film will stay blurry. In case you are curious, we use Sony 4K projectors (I'm not exactly sure what model, but I can find that out soon) and every movie downloaded is an uncompressed video file (I am unsure of the container) that is around 200GB+ per movie. EDIT: While I am not 100% certain (I will check when I go to work next, which is on Monday), I believe we use Sony SRX-R815P projectors. Once again, I'll know for certain on Monday.

What was your job specifically? Did you ever have to deal with a bootlegger?

I was simply a "floor staff". I took tickets, worked concessions and cleaned up theaters. As an usher, we have to do "theater checks'. During the summer when it was less busy, I was able to watch the majority of a movie while working. We never had to deal with a bootlegger, but our employee handbook promises a cash reward for anyone that catches someone filming the movie.
