It will be lights, camera and action for Nambour when the national movie premiere of BOAR! comes to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland town on Saturday.
With support from Sunshine Coast Council, Nambour will play host to the movie's launch where locals can experience all the fanfare of a Hollywood-style red carpet premiere.
Division 10 Councillor Greg Rogerson said he was thrilled that director Chris Sun had chosen home turf to premiere his last epic motion picture which was shot predominantly in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
"This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase Nambour's lively, quirky and innovative creative scene," Cr Rogerson said.
"After it was proposed that Nambour could host the premiere, we pulled out all the stops to ensure that the town comes alive for what will be an exciting one-off event.
"Our support is all part of energising C-Square and the Town Square as entertainment hubs in accordance with the Nambour Activation Plan.
"I'm especially looking forward to the red carpet arrival of the film stars and getting up close and personal with the film's main star BOAR – which thankfully is a replica."
Sunshine Coast locals are invited to come down to watch the stars walk the red carpet from 5pm and take a selfie with an eight-foot replica BOAR.
C-Square will also host a bar, live music and food truck as part of the night's entertainment.
Currie Street between Howard and Low Streets will be closed from 4pm
