Job Description
Coordinator, Theatrical Programming

Netflix is strongly committed to keeping the theatrical moviegoing experience alive. We believe in giving viewers choice, and in showing movies in the best way possible, including on the big screen. We present our films in many theaters around the world, including the legendary Paris Theater in Manhattan, which has been run by Netflix since 2019, and the historic Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, which reopened in November, 2023. The theatrical team is a small, dedicated group of passionate movie lovers bringing an ever-growing slate of movies to theaters before they become available online. Theatrical exhibition boosts awareness and excitement for our film slate, creates conversation and awards buzz, and is a great service to the filmmakers. We are looking for a versatile, energetic, highly organized coordinator for the Los Angeles office who will work closely with the theatrical team to curate, book and schedule movies at the Paris and the Egyptian, as well as the Bay Theater in Pacific Palisades, CA.

You will be responsible for assisting in the planning and execution of theatrical events and programming for high-profile Netflix titles. This dynamic role requires a passion for cinema, a keen eye for detail, and strong organizational skills.

The Ideal Candidate:

We are looking for someone with a minimum of five years experience in film exhibition or distribution who has a deep understanding of the recent history and current status of the Los Angeles repertory cinema scene - both from a business and cultural standpoint.
