You may have been to any number of outdoor cinemas in Melbourne, but none of them were in the concave track line of Australia’s oldest concrete velodrome.

Over four Saturday nights in February, the Ride In Cinema at Coburg Velodrome will screen modern classics (and one new-ish release) including E.T. the Extra Terrestrial on February 11; Blade Runner on February 18; and The Big Lebowski on February 25. The season begins with Star Wars: Rogue One on February 4.

Food and drinks can be ordered from your picnic spot by raising a flag. There will also be a full bar with snacks. And a bunch of food trucks for dinner options.

General admission is $18 and tickets for children and concession holders are $16. Doors open at 7pm, screenings start at 8.45pm.
