The Directors Guild of America, a labor union representing film and television directors and their teams, has an opening in its New York office for an experienced Theater Operations Manager. This is an onsite position whose primary responsibility is coordinating all aspects of the operation of the DGA theater on 57th Street in Manhattan. This requires supervision and training of a theater staff of several part-time employees, handling the logistical needs of DGA events held within the theater (e.g., member screenings), booking theater rentals when it is not used for DGA events and building the profile of the theater as a premiere screening facility for industry events, and handling contracts and invoices.
The position also includes operational and logistical support unrelated to the operation of the theater, including handling catering and working with vendors and budgets for other DGA events held within our building (e.g., member meetings) and coordinating theater and building maintenance with vendors and staff. This opening is created by the transfer of the person currently in this role to our Los Angeles office. While the theater is not in operation right now, we would like to fill the role immediately so that we can begin the training process. In the interim before the theater reopens, the person in this position will assist with varying levels of administrative support.
Candidates should have excellent written and verbal communication skills, relevant experience, and ideally a passion for the theatrical experience. The role is full time and requires work on evenings and weekends as necessary.
The DGA is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants are encouraged to apply.
