Maine movie


“The Islander,” a film about lobstermen shot in and around Vinalhaven, will be shown at the Lewiston Flagship Cinema in the Promenade Mall beginning this week. The first screening will be Friday, July 27 at 12:20 p.m., following by a second showing at 7:05 p.m. The movie will be shown at those times every day throughout the coming week, with an extension if it proves popular.

This portrait of human weakness and courage is set on fishing island off the Maine coast, where families have lived and worked off the sea for many generations. According to the film Web site,, Eben Cole, played by Thomas Hildreth, above, continues his family’s legacy of harvesting lobsters from the waters surrounding the island – until the day he fires a warning shot in the direction of a mainlander who has been fishing in his territory.
