Internship Opportunities

Our interns are an essential part of the Roxie team. Interns work with the Programming and Operations Departments and learn what it takes to succeed behind-the-scenes of a historic, independent, non-profit cinema. Interning is a great way to meet fellow film-lovers and gain access to our exciting programming and special events! Our interns come from a wide variety of backgrounds, from film school to marketing to media students and everything in between.

We regularly host interns during fall, spring and summer semesters. Interested students should contact us at least four to five weeks before the start of the semester for which they would be earning credit with their internship. At this time, internships are only available for currently-enrolled students who would be earning course credit for their internship. If you would like to find out more about joining the team or our current internship needs, please email
