To Do Friday: Top Gun

Top-GunSee the 1986 Tom Cruise popcorn flick Top Gun in the most ideal setting: outdoors at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. Seated on a first-come, first-served basis, guests are encouraged to bring their own food and beverages, but leave the booze at home. The screening is the first event in a line-up of “dynamic, educational and fun experiences dedicated to honoring heroes past and present and inspiring those of the future.” Maybe Top Gun will inspire someone to join the navy, or at least buy a pair of Ray-Ban aviators.
