Unless you're a real grinch, your end-of-year viewing probably features plenty of red, white, snow, presents, eggnog and Santa. Elf, Home Alone, How the Grinch Stole Christmas — you get the idea. Sure, you've seen Will Ferrell take on the festive season before. And, you've seen Macaulay Culkin take on a pair of robbers too. But if you haven't seen them on a 44-metre-long outdoor screen, have you really seen them?

Big Screen on the Green, Brisbane's mammoth movie-viewing option, is getting into the spirit of the season with a heap of festive flicks. From Monday, December 16 until Thursday, December 19, it'll project something merry every night. All of the above titles are featured, plus The Polar Express too.

The best part, other than the sack full of nostalgia? Entry is via gold coin donation, so it's a very cheap night at the movies. If you register in advance you'll also get a free frozen Fanta — or you can upgrade to a heap of packages from $10, which includes boozy beverage and a popcorn. The $55 option for two comes with prawns, a charcuterie platter, mini cakes and fruit, while the $85 ramps up the decadent feast, including a soft Christmas meringue.

You can also rent picnic blankets for $12 and bean bags for $8.

Doors open at 5.30pm each night, with the films starting at 7pm.
