Top Gun

Sunday, Sep 4 at 4:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Tony Scott. 1986. 110 mins. 70mm. With Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, Tom Skerritt, Meg Ryan. A box-office smash and cultural touchstone of Reagan-era America, the original Top Gun was, and remains, an unapologetic turbo-engined Hollywood spectacle. Cruise plays Maverick, a cocky naval fighter pilot in training who feels the need for speed—and for his beautiful astrophysics instructor (McGillis). Featuring a blockbuster. multi-platinum soundtrack (including the Academy Award–winning “Take My Breath Away”) and head-spinning aerial cinematography by Jeffrey L. Kimball, Top Gun fully launched Cruise into the stratosphere and director Scott onto the A-list.
