Today, we’d like to introduce you to Joyce – who is part of the front counter team at Event Cinemas in The Myer Centre, and who has been with Event Cinemas for over 40 years!
Q. Can you tell me, how long you have been with Event Cinemas and the key moments of that journey?
A. I started with Event Cinemas in 1974 on George Street, Sydney and then in 1975 moved to Brisbane and continued to work with the cinemas. I left for 6 years to start a family, I have two kids and three grandchildren. My key moments working with Event Cinemas are the friendships I have formed in past co -workers. Four of my special friends are ladies who I worked with in the past.
Q. What is your favorite memory from your time with the company?
A. My favorite memory was when the team gave me a surprise afternoon tea for my 50th Birthday. The support and generosity from the teams have always made me feel special.
Q. What do you love about working at Event Cinemas that keeps you going every day?
A. I love working at Event Cinemas as no two days are the same. Regular customers are great to see. The staff I work with are all much younger than me but they’re just lovely and very respectful towards me.
Joyce looks forward to seeing her regular customers – some of whom visit daily!
“We have regular customers that have been coming 15 plus years, which we have formed great friendships. There was a lady in her 90’s, she was my hero. She would come in rain hail or shine and she loved movies.”
Q. What is something about yourself that people might not know?
A. People wouldn’t know that I worked for the airlines as a flight attendant before I worked at the cinemas.
Why not take the trip to the movies soon? Be sure to say hi to Joyce and the team at Event Cinemas The Myer Centre when you do!
