Fisherman's Friends (2019) is a biographical comedy-drama based on the unlikely but real-life story of a group of Cornish guard/lifeboat workers who, moonlighting as a sea shanty singing a cappella group, got signed by Universal and made a debut album that reached the top ten.
The story unfolds in the picturesque fishing town of Port Isaac when fast living, cynical London music executive Danny Anderson (Daniel Mays) reluctantly heads to Conwall with his charmless chums on a colleague's stag weekend where he's pranked by Troy (NoelClarke), his slick boss, into trying to sign a group of shanty-singing fishermen.
Danny's first encounter with single mum Alwyn (Tuppence Middleton) could hardly have been less promising. He becomes the ultimate 'fish out of water' struggling to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. Attempting to overcome the fishermen's scepticism about the music business, he has his integrity tested and ultimately is shown the meaning of loyalty. He finds love and friendship. This forces him to re-evaluate what really matters in life: ultimately giving him the chance of a different kind of success.

The bar will be available from 7pm, during the interval and at the end of the film screening for anyone who would like to take the opportunity to have a chat about the film over a drink.
The bar now offers a variety of beverages from wine, beer and prosecco to soft drinks and bottled water.
Various teas, coffee both regular and decaffeinated and other refreshments are available by donation.
Ice creams available and supplied by Rachel at Forget me Not’s Nayland.
We look forward to seeing you at the Nayland Community Cinema, no need to book just come along.
Cinema entry will be £5 but with every fifth attendance free (with a loyalty card available at the cinema) this equates to only £4 a film.
As we are now coming up to a year since the Nayland Cinema was relaunched I am proposing to ask Lorraine to include a questionnaire in the next edition of the Community Times. I would be grateful if you could spare the time to complete this questionnaire and return to the Post Office in the box provided. This will enable us to consider your preferences to ensure that the cinema continues to thrive. Many thanks.
