Sit on the hallowed ground of the MCG and take in a film on the scoreboard

Last year, the Melbourne Cricket Ground announced that they were hosting an event that we never would've expected to see: an outdoor cinema not only at the MCG, but on the ground itself, with movies playing on the huge scoreboard. 

Naturally, the event was a huge success. Pack a picnic and bring blankets and beanbags – Cinema at the 'G is back again this February for two big nights. 

First up is Lion (Feb 24), starring Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) and Nicole Kidman. The 2016 film follows the story of an Indian-Australian man who returns to India to find his birth family.

On Saturday (Feb 25), catch Sully: the 2016 biographical drama starring Tom Hanks, which tells the true story of the pilot who managed to safely land a passenger jet on the Hudson River in 2009. 

Takings for the event will go to the Bank of Melbourne's Neighbourhood Fund, which supports small Victorian charities across a number of different areas. 

A spectacular setting, great movies and a good cause: sounds pretty ace to us.
