Storyline

In addition to being a mainstay of the local lifeboat crew Norman has been the manager of the little pier theatre in his home seaside town for forty years ever since he was a youngster. In those days the venue played host to popular singers like the flamboyant Alma Cogan, meeting with whom Norman still fondly remembers. Now however the council, who own the pier, want to oust Norman in favour of younger hipper management and Norman plans to fight. Norman has long been supported by his loyal assistant Sandra, a would-be singer, but she persuades him that perhaps it is time for him to go - and so he does, this time supporting Sandra as she begins a career as a singer herself.

Lovely movie.
19 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I booked my tickets online to see this movie in Norwich, I am biased a little as i live not to far from the film location. From the beginning i enjoyed the mood of this story. Actors and actresses all well known to British TV viewers were top class. The location was used perfectly. What a lovely film i heard from most of the cinema audience as they left the auditorium. I enjoyed all aspects of this movie. The story of the end of the pier theatre is not an easy subject but good writing and perfect editing gave it the edge it needed. Not forgetting the plot, what a imaginative script. Alma Cogan, who would have thought that her name would rise again. Such a good evening. Still singing her songs now,
