December 2016 Dumaresq Street Cinema

Dumaresq Street Cinema is a budget movie theatre showcasing the latest blockbusters.  It provides affordable entertainment for the whole family.  Since re-opening in 1991, the Cinema has built up a strong presence in Macarthur, employing a staff of over 30 and adding an additional cinema.

Current owners Allison and Greg Moore enjoy giving back to the community.  They have been offering week long work placements to Year 11 and 12 students, who are studying Entertainment as part of their Higher School Certificate, since 2003!

Allison says “We empathise with our region’s young people.  We had teenage children and knew how hard it was to get them opportunities to become skilled in the work place.  We enjoy giving students the opportunity to put what they are learning in the classroom to good use in the work force.  It is also a good way to identify potential employees.  If they work well in the week they are with us, they stand a good chance of being hired.” (more…)

What do people say?

“You can make a difference in someone’s life just by mentoring them for one week.  It will help you and the student, grow and mature as an individual.  We have had some excellent students resulting in us hiring four waitresses, one kitchen hand and multiple apprentices – all from the MWLP program.”
Campbelltown Golf Club – Darren Neate, Head Chef

“It’s a good opportunity to see the calibre of Macarthur’s youth.  We get to screen those with potential that will ultimately benefit the company.  The students are encouraged to ask lots of questions to assess whether this industry is right for them.  It’s a win-win situation.”
Breseight Australia – Mel McNair
