Free tickets: 'Sound of freedom' rumbles onto silver screen with 'Top Gun' revival

There'll be a special Independence Day showing of "Top Gun" at the Loft for July 4, and you could win tickets to the movie, which is having its 30th anniversary. Feel the need for speed? Ride into the danger zone — it'll take your breath away.

From our friends at the Loft Cinema:

Ride into the Danger Zone this 4th of July and celebrate your independence with Maverick, Goose and Iceman at a 30th Anniversary screening of the high-flying patriotic blockbuster, Top Gun!  If you feel the need, the need for speed, this is the place to be!

In the role that made him one of the world’s biggest stars, Tom Cruise rides into the Danger Zone in this smash-hit action flick that helped define both the modern-day blockbuster and the entire decade of the ‘80s.   In Top Gun, Cruise plays Maverick, a hotshot flier who is sent to the Navy’s prestigious Top Gun program.   Yes, he’s good, but he’s also cocky and a bit of a rebel, and in order to truly become the “best of the best,” he’ll need the help of his wingman Goose (Anthony Edwards) and his sexy new love interest, Charlie (Kelly McGillis), a flight instructor who teaches him a few things outside the classroom.   He’ll also need a push from his new frenemy, the tough-as-nails Iceman (Val Kilmer), who takes competition to a whole new level, whether in the air or on the volleyball court.  Does Maverick have what it takes to become the true Top Gun?   One of the first of several megawatt collaborations between producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott, Top Gun’s slick visuals, pumping action and MTV-friendly soundtrack (featuring such hits as Kenny Loggins’ rockin’ Danger Zone and Berlin’s Oscar-winning ballad Take My Breath Away) helped turn the aerial drama into the biggest box-office hit of 1986 – a film that thirty years later still gets your adrenaline pumping and satisfies your need for speed. Let’s turn and burn! (Dir. by Tony Scott, 1986, USA, 110 mins., Rated PG)
