Saving the galaxy is a big job. Trying to thwart an evil empire, its insidious leaders and an army of stormtroopers is too. There's much that's massive about Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens, the long-awaited continuation of George Lucas' beloved space opera, so you'll want to revisit it on a particularly huge screen — one that measures 44 metres long, perhaps?

Set up in the middle of Eagle Farm Racecourse, the aptly named Big Screen on the Green is that giant screen. It hosts films regularly, and from 6.30pm on Friday, November 16, it'll bringing jedis, droids, wookiees and more to its sizeable expanse.

Tickets cost $15, which gets you a spot on the public lawn — or you can spend $25 and get a large popcorn as well, plus your choice of wine, sparkling, house beer or a non-boozy beverage. You can't BYO food or drinks, but there'll be more available to purchase. Or if you'd like a picnic, bring a pal and nab a $60 gourmet hamper package for two, which includes charcuterie, a cheese platter and breads.
