A 12-hour Nicolas Cage movie marathon is hitting Melbourne

A special treat for Cage lovers.

Melbourne International Film Festival is set to take over the Astor Theatre with its next marathon instalment, this time paying tribute to the eternal film god Nicolas Cage.

It’s the first of three MIFF events to be revealed at Melbourne’s iconic art-deco theatre and as the first cab off the rank, 12 hours of straight Cage isn’t too bad.

You’re sure to catch everything from his ’87 classic Raising Arizona, to the timeless National Treasure all in the one parcel -- and who could forget Con Air or The Rock? 

What a time to be alive. Thank you, Nicolas.

It all goes down on Friday August 10. Grab your ticket via MIFF.
