Classic Movie Night - Top Gun
Classic Movie Night resumes with the 1986 action drama Top Gun on Friday, July 1, at the historic Jefferson Theatre in downtown Beaumont. The film stars Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer and Tom Skerritt. Cruise plays Lt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, a young Navy aviator who, along with buddy Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, is given a chance to train at the Navy’s Fighter Weapons School in San Diego. The soundtrack, which features songs like “Danger Zone” and “Take My Breath Away,” sold more than 9 million copies. Just last year, the Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the National Film Registrar being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” The film is 1 hour and 50 minutes and Rated PG. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the movie begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5. Beer, wine and other concessions will be available. The Jefferson Theatre is located at 345 Fannin.
