A monthly film club showing recent releases, with a raffle and refreshments served in the interval. New members welcome!
A fast-living, cynical London music executive heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band who value friendship and community over fame and fortune.
Based on the true story of the Port Isaac sea shanty group, this is a lovely, heart-warming Cornish tale.
Held on the first Thursday of every month, excluding August, we are a club that has now been running for three years. We have an active membership of around 60 members, with audiences of around 20-30 people. We tend to show more recent releases, including British comedies, biopics, critically acclaimed award winners and historical dramas. Come along before the film to have a chat with others, or just sit back and listen to the film’s soundtrack that will be playing as you enter. We have an interval halfway through the film to serve hot drinks and homemade cake as well as to draw the raffle, which sometimes includes prizes related to the film being shown. Any money raised from the evening is added to the village hall funds to help carry out further improvements.
Polgooth Film Club is part of the C Fylm network, Cornwall’s network of community film clubs. When you come to your first C Fylm screening, you will be asked to pay £6 for a C Fylm membership, and get your first film for free!
