Marketing Internships at Celebration! Cinema

Jeremy KressBy Jeremy Kress
Director of Marketing & Promotions

Ever wonder what it’s like to work in the entertainment business? Celebration! Cinema’s Marketing Department offers a hands-on experience with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the fun and excitement in the entertainment exhibition industry.

Working with our interns’ interests
While each internship gives an overall look at what is involved with the marketing of our theatres, movies, and special events, it is also customized to the strengths and interests of each intern. Graphic Design, Event Planning, Inventory Management, Media Promotions, Customer Loyalty, Copywriting, Social Networking, and Concession Marketing are some different areas in which interns can explore and work. While many internship programs give interns the opportunity to learn what the business does, we believe that it is also important for us to learn from each intern as well – our interns are truly a part of our department (not just coffee gophers!).

Don’t just take our word for it
We asked some of our former interns to talk about their experiences in our internship program:

Ian“As a family owned and run business, they made me feel like a part of that family and my opinion mattered to them. There were great benefits like the opportunity to work with a leader in area marketing and a VIP card which entitled me to free movies the length of my internship! It was challenging both personally and professionally but I left with some great new friends and a sense of pride. I would highly recommend an internship with Celebration Cinema.”
Ian McLellan – Fall 2007
Ferris State University
Amy“I did it for the experience, and ended up having a lot of fun – I was surrounded by the movie business! I learned a lot, from film marketing to the theatre business, and some skills to take away with me (design, copywriting, e-marketing, etc). I would recommend this internship to anyone.”
Amy Hile – Summer 2008
Central Michigan University
Nicole“It allowed me to use the skills I had acquired from my marketing classes and apply it to one of my favorite hobbies. The internship experience also gave me hands-on understanding of the now-available social media tactics, a new field of marketing that is only now starting to enter college textbooks. But the plus of doing it at Celebration! Cinema is the ability to do so in a nurturing close-knit office environment, with a company ran by a family doing what they love.”
Nicole Ball – Winter 2009
Grand Valley State University
Patrick“As an marketing intern, I learned many important aspects of the movie theater industry. From putting on special events, to promoting upcoming movies, my time at Celebration! Cinema has given me the confidence and skills to continue my education in the hospitality industry. The position allowed me to be flexible with my schedule, and the work environment was comfortable and relaxing.”
Patrick Greiner – Summer 2009
Cornell University
Lindsey“I got real life experience designing marketing materials, helping plan events, brainstorming marketing ideas and diving into marketing with social media. Everyone made me feel welcome and like part of the team. I felt that they truly valued my input and wanted to hear what I had to say. It was just a great work atmosphere and I am so glad that I had the chance to be part of it!”
Lindsey Noel – Summer 2009
Central Michigan University
Jeff“My time as an intern at Celebration! Cinema has been one of the most enjoyable work experiences of my life. I am never without a meaningful task to do that directly affects the success of the company. The work environment and interaction is more closely related to a working family rather than a corporate stereotype. I feel this experience has helped prepare me for the perks and the work involved with a business.”
Jeff Stowe – Winter 2010
Davenport University

The summer program offers a flexible schedule of 15-20 hours per week over the course of 12-16 weeks. While this is an unpaid internship, it does offer the benefits of FREE Movies, Discounted Concessions, Awesome Movie Goodies, and the Experience of a Lifetime. We will be interviewing for our summer positions in late March/early April.

    I am the Director of Special Programs for Kent City Community Schools. We are hosting a career day on April 16th for our middle school and high school students. I am having people from all different careers come in and talk to the students in half hour sessions about their careers. We would love to have someone from Celebration Cinemas come talk about the marketing or any other behind the scenes careers that are involved! Please let me know if this is something you or any of your colleagues might be interested in! I think that your internship program sounds amazing! Would you ever be interested in having high school or middle school students come to do an individual or group job shadow of sorts to see what all is involved???
