We are looking for an experienced marketing executive to join our team as we prepare for the opening of our cinema and then to take care of marketing and sales opportunities once we are operational. This is very much a hands-on/on the ground role rather than a strategic one, and you will be able to get involved in many aspects of the business as we grow.

The successful candidate will need to be able to work independently, plan effectively, set their own deadlines and prioritise their own workload. They will need to embody the company’s brand values and always represent the company in the best possible light.

This is initially a part-time position, and the hours will increase the closer the cinema is to the opening date. There will be a degree of flexibility over the location of the role which will be based partly in cinema, partly off-site meeting partners and attending events, and remote working is also possible. All applicants should be prepared to work some evenings and weekends as required.

Role Responsibilities:

  • Forming relationships with local partners and businesses to explore joint promotional opportunities
  • Establishing links with local press and media and supply them with regular press releases and editorial content
  • Promoting and actively selling the venue as an events space and assisting the management team in the delivery of private events
  • Communicating with our fabulous members about upcoming screenings and partner offers
  • Writing copy for our newsletter and articles for the news section on our website
  • Managing our social media accounts
  • Overseeing print-based marketing in-venue
  • Representing the company at local events
  • Assisting in the planning of our launch strategy to include press nights, shareholder events and the grand opening party

Person Specification:

  • Experience in a similar local-based marketing role covering both B2B and B2C activity
  • Knowledge of the local area, population, and businesses. A real passion for integrating the cinema into the heart of the community
  • A creative thinker and writer who likes to take the initiative to come up with interesting concepts
  • Naturally personable and an ambassador for the venue
  • Familiar with WordPress and basic social media analytics tools
  • Efficient and organised with the ability to prioritise and manage your own workload
  • Not afraid to get “stuck in” with other areas of the business, including customer service-based tasks
  • Passionate about cinema, films and events

Why Work for The Living Room Cinema?

As well as a competitive salary and a generous employer pension scheme, you can enjoy a range of other perks such as cinema tickets, a generous holiday allowance and other employee benefits, partnership offers and welfare packages.

Most of all though, we strongly believe that you should love what you do. We will make sure that it is always a pleasure to come to work and, like us, you will be proud to work for The Living Room Cinema.

Opening Early 2022

Progress on the cinema build is going well and despite the various setbacks the entire construction industry has faced (supply chain issues, petrol issues… the list is endless!) we are pleased to announce that we are on schedule for an early 2022 opening.

Our cinema build encompasses two parts: refurbishing the existing old building which will become our café bar area and a new structure at the rear which will become our auditorium. Both are progressing nicely but a lot of this initial work is hidden beneath the ground – the next stage of the build will be very visible and you’ll see a lot of changes very quickly!

Once the main structure is complete the fun really starts. The fit-out of the auditorium includes state of the art sound and projection equipment, and our luxurious custom-made armchairs and sofas are being manufactured in Belfast as we speak.

The café bar area will be your home from home for you to relax in pre or post-film – or even on those days that you haven’t even got a ticket!  You’ll be able to sink into our comfy leather sofas, do some work or grab something to eat at our larger tables, or sit at the bar stools in the window alcoves and watch the world go by. There will be a cosy library area to curl up with a good book in or enjoy a cocktail underneath our New York prohibition-style chandelier lights.

We are putting the final touches on our interior design including signature fragrances and hand wash, talking to local suppliers about stocking their produce and finalising the bar design with our local joiner, Shaun. All of these individual touches will help make your visit extra special.


We can’t wait to welcome you all!
