It made a star out of Macaulay Culkin, and made every 90s kid hope their family went on holidays without them — and it's the highest-grossing Christmas film of all time. It's been essential end-of-year viewing for nearly three decades and will return to the big screen in a huge way this December.

Welcoming festive season in the most appropriate fashion, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is busting out the best movie there is about an eight-year-old who outsmarts two burglars while living it up without his parents and siblings. That child, of course, is Kevin McCallister. The film is Home Alone. And on Friday, December 13 and Saturday, December 14, the MSO will not only play the beloved classic at Hamer Hall, but perform John Williams' rousing Oscar-nominated score live during the flick.

If your response to the above news is to hold your hands to your cheeks and exclaim, then you'll want to nab a seat.

There's no need to set traps or play pranks to grab a ticket — they go on sale at 10am on Wednesday, October 2. And even if you're buying yours online, if you feel compelled to yell "keep the change, ya filthy animal!", no one will judge you.
