Aero Theatre | Virtual Q&A with Tom Skerritt
Home / Now Showing / TOP GUN
Tom Cruise’s cocky novice pilot must grow up and hone his chops as a fighter ace while wooing flight instructor Kelly McGillis and bumping heads with hard-as-nails rival Val Kilmer. The first of several megawatt collaborations between Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott, TOP GUN was the perfect American action film for the 1980s. With Anthony Edwards and Tom Skerritt.
