Meet some of the new people who are helping us elevate the art of film in Ft. Wayne!
New Director of Theater Operations: Amanda Neumann
Amanda recently graduated from IPFW with BAs in English Communication and Women’s Studies and spends her time plotting how to change the world. She also enjoys spending time with her perfect cats (Bella, Couch, and Junebug), watching shows on Netflix, reading lots of YA fantasy and science fiction, making zines, eating pizza, and writing. Amanda has a passion for nonprofits--she’s worked as an intern with the Paul Clarke Nonprofit Resource Center and volunteers as the Fandom Forward Project Leader for The Harry Potter Alliance, which uses fan activism to engage people of all ages in philanthropy. Amanda has worked with Cinema Center for the past year and a half and is excited to continue to make Cinema Center one of the coolest places in Fort Wayne!
New Director of Office Administration/Bookkeeping: Tammara Cornett
Tammara enjoys spending time with family (husband, Marc, and two college-age daughters), small Papillon lapdog, reading sci-fi and historical fiction, puzzle games, baking, travel, experiencing local restaurants all over FW, rearranging furniture, organizing, and crossing things off her to-do list. Her two favorite movies are The Village, and Planes, Trains & Autos. She especially enjoys historical homes/buildings and then/now photos, and is excited to see growth and events in downtown Fort Wayne. Having past experience with non-profit events/financials, she appreciates that the staff's positive, welcoming outlook contributes greatly to what Cinema Center offers the Fort Wayne community, and enjoys being able to help with organization and record-keeping in the office.
