15. But always getting stuck with the crappy ones because the good ones were already taken :(

16. That feeling when you had an usher shift instead of concession (or box)

unless there was a birthday party

17. But really, it was all worth it for free movies (forever and ever and ever)

Oh, you haven’t worked here in 5 years? It’s ok, have a free ticket
