Could there be a more atmospheric place to relive the tower-buzzing highs of Top Gun than the deck of the Intrepid? We can’t think of one—barring a trip to vaguely identified hostile waters. The flick kicks off the floating museum’s sixth annual outdoor film series, which also features Independence Day (July 10), The Hunt for Red October (July 31) and Captain Phillips (Aug 14). Bring a blanket or chair, some snacks and nonalcoholic drinks for the 1986 blockbuster, which stars Tom Cruise as a volleyball-loving Navy pilot, Val Kilmer as his jaw-chomping rival and Kelly McGillis as a Ph.D.-equipped flight instructor who’s all too easily impressed by barroom karaoke. As one classic Time Out review put it “Tom Cruise is ready to homoerotically take your breath away.” Who could resist.
