Summit Daily/Brad Odekirk Making The Grade - Jen Lund

The mountains of Summit County may be far away from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, but movie buff Jen Lund has found her ideal job in film right here in the High Country. The Frisco resident is a projectionist at Skyline Cinema in Dillon. From serving up popcorn and candy to tearing tickets, Lund has the theater’s inner workings under control. She operates the film projectors and sells concessions and tickets at the movie theater.Lund said her favorite movie so far this year is “Kung Fu Hustle,” directed by and starring Stephen Chow.”It’s awesome,” Lund said. “It has everything – story, action, everything.”Her favorite movie overall is 2001’s “The Royal Tenenbaums,” starring Gene Hackman, Luke and Owen Wilson and Gwyneth Paltrow.”It’s just an excellent movie all around,” she said.

What do you like best about your job?”Definitely the movies. I’m a huge movie buff. I get to talk about them and see them for free.”What do you do when you’re not working?”I go skateboarding, hiking, anything outdoors, riding my scooter. I also work at the stables in Keystone part time.”What’s something people might be surprised to know about you?

“I have tattoos in my armpits. They’re flowers.”If you could have any job, what would it be?”I’d probably be a zoologist out in the field observing animals and their behavior in the wild.”What brought you to Summit County? “The landscape, the lack of traffic. There aren’t so many crazy people. I come from a congested area. It’s good to get away from the rat race and the grid lock.”
