Feel the need for speed? 25 years after Top Gun’s release, Maverick is tearing through the sky again on the big screen. Fans of the film and newcomers alike can take in the digitally remastered classic for two shows only.

Special Engagements: Saturday, April 30 at 12:30pm and Monday, May 2 at 7:00pm

Guests will receive a theatre-sized commemorative poster while supplies last.

Devil-may-care navy pilot Pete Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is sent to Miramar Naval Air Station for advanced training. Here he vies with Tom Kasansky (Val Kilmer) for the coveted Top Gun award. When not so occupied, Mitchell carries on a romance with civilian consultant Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis). Shaken up by the death of a friend, Mitchell loses the Top Gun honor to Kasansky. Worried that he may have lost his nerve, Mitchell is given a chance to redeem himself during a tense international crisis involving a crippled US vessel and a flock of predatory enemy planes. The story wasn’t new in 1986, but Top Gun scored with audiences on the strength of its visuals, especially the vertigo-inducing aerial sequences.

Se l’orgia di testosterone, bandiere americane e strapotere militare che seguirà l’uccisione di Bin Laden non vi basta, ricordate che corre il 25esimo di uno dei film contemporaneamente più epici e insopportabilmente sciovinisti che si ricordino, Top Gun.

Per quelli della mia generazione la causa di innumerevoli ore passate sui flight simulator, in sala giochi o semplicemente a sognare di diventare piloti di caccia.

Resta comunque un film con un tasso di spettacolarità difficilmente eguagliabile.

Top Gun torna nelle sale negli USA, mentre si vocifera di un sequel
