Tana started working at the theater in 2005 and has been our General Manager since 2006. She plans a mean employee party and works hard to make sure our customers and staff enjoy their time at The Garland. As a kid, Tana really wanted to be a school teacher–now she works hard managing the theater and raising her 2 children.
Ryan joined The Garland Theater team in 2015. His guilty pleasure is ice cream but his favorite theater snack is definitely popcorn! Ryan dreams of being an animator at Pixar someday.
Jasmine started work at the theater as a concession-selling extraordinaire. Quickly realizing the world of tickets and popcorn was too small for the likes of her, she started slinging drinks in Bon Bon. Her three favorite things in the world include bears, Abraham Lincoln and her friend Stephen Theodore Colvin. We totally understand two of those loves.
Elijah became part of the Garland team in 2011. He believes the Garland Theater is one of the few places where you can find real community. When Elijah was young he wanted to be a Power Ranger when he grew up, now he is more interested in Star Wars.
Though Ama wanted to be a professional figure skater as a child, she now strives to become a published author. Ama has been a great addition to the team as of 2015. Ama never forgets her Sour Patch Kids when watching a movie at the historical Garland Theater.
Frankly speaking, when asked to fill out a questionnaire about himself, Christopher gave really boring answers. This is unfortunate as he has revealed himself to be hilarious, articulate, passionate about movies and a dear friend to his fellow co-workers. This little turtle just came outta his shell.
Jay joined the Garland team to lend a hand in the kitchen in 2016. Jay enjoys traveling and classical music. His movie experience just isn’t the same without his favorite theater snack, Red Vines!
Liam started tending bar in Bon Bon in 2016. He strives to be the “stretchiest man on Earth” and loves Star Trek Enterprise specifically episode three of season two.
Appropriately enough, when Cabby was little she wanted to be a director and would make all her friends “rehearse” during recess. She now helps us run Bon Bon and will tell you on the sly that one thing most people don’t know about our bar employees is that they are all good dancers. When she’s not slingin’ sin behind the bar, she enjoys a classy, smoky martini while watching really crazy reality TV shows.
Maya started working at the theater in 2013. Her favorite concessions snack is popcorn, of course! When Maya was little she wanted to build things or be a fairy.
When asked what animal he would be if given the choice, he stated he would choose the life of a bear-hawk. Half bear, half hawk, all awesome. He joined us in 2012 and we’ve never been the same.
Robert joined the Bon Bon team in 2016. He enjoys a sweet and fruity drink as long as it’s not too sweet or too fruity.
Kelly has been keeping The Garland and Bon Bon in fine running order for a while now. If he could be any animal, he would be a crow which is totally fitting as he is great at keeping a bird eye view of all that is going on with our lovely, historic building. Kelly makes fast friends with all he meets and in his free time enjoys sailing, Old Fashioneds, and cough drops.
Cora has been brightening The Garland for some time now. She has a natural talent for making cotton candy which is also her biggest weakness when it comes to movie theater snacks. Since working at the theater Cora has discovered that the last stall in the women’s restroom is haunted!
Gary is what might be known as the strong, silent type. In keeping with this persona, his guilty pleasure is betting the ponies. What we have come to realize about Gary however, is that he is really one giant softie. His aspirations for himself are to be a great father and grandfather. Teddy bear status achieved.
