Have a swashbuckling time at Mutiny on the Bounty screening

ACADEMY Award-winning film Mutiny on the Bounty will be screened at the Hervey Bay and Maryborough libraries later this month.

The film, starring Clark Gable and Charles Laughton, won the 1935 Academy Award for Best Picture and is the golden oldie being shown at Hervey Bay Library on Friday, August 23, and Maryborough Library on Monday, August 26, at 10am.

In this great retelling of the famous mutiny, Fletcher Christian successfully leads a revolt against the ruthless Captain Bligh on the HMS Bounty. However, Bligh returns a year later, hell bent on avenging his captors.

Councillor for community George Seymour said the Vintage Movie Club had proven popular and were one way the council was "seeking to ensure that the libraries remain a vibrant, cultural hub".

"There are activities for people of all ages and interests and the libraries offer so much more than books - they are community spaces where people can explore their interests, get creative and expand their horizons," he said.

Places are limited and bookings are required so phone the library in Maryborough on 4190 5788 or Hervey Bay on 4197 4220 to reserve a place.
