Yeah, baby!

We’re on the highway to The Danger Zone!

‘Cause, you Take My Breath Away!!

Uh huh….everyone’s favorite homo-erotic Tom Cruise movie from the Eighties is back this spring as the iconic (in a campy sort of way) fighter pilot film TOP GUN turns 30 years old. There’s a special release DVD coming out in May and Three Dollar Bill Cinema is using the film as the theme for their 9th annual banquet/auction happening on April 1, 2016 at MOHAI. The event is a major fundraiser that helps Three Dollar Bill produce the Translations Film Festival in May, and the annual “Twist: Seattle Queer Film Festival” (formerly the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival) in October…not to mention all sorts of other awesome film events throughout the year.

And, to whet your appetite for the April event, Three Dollar Bill is presenting a special screening of Top Gun this coming Saturday, March 5. 2016. Here’s all the poo:

You’re invited to an exclusive screening of Top Gun on March 5th at 12th Avenue Arts (1620 12th Avenue). “Wheels up” at 7:00pm!

In preparation for our TOP GUN-themed Dinner & Auction on April 1 at Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI), we thought we should all bone up by viewing the original with our LGBTQ crew and emcee, “Captain” Scott Carnz!

This is a FREE event, but each attendee is encouraged to bring a bottle of wine (valued at $25 or more) as a donation to our fundraising auction.

There will be a hosted bar and, of course, popcorn!

RSVP is required as space is limited! Reserve your seat today and get ready to soar! To RSVP please email info@threedollarbillcinema.org.

To get tickets to the TOP GUN gala event on April 1, 2016, go HERE!

As for experiencing Top Gun in the privacy of your own home, Paramount Home Media is releasing a new Blu-ray combo steelbook on May 3rd and will be available on Digital HD on May 10th.

TopGunDVDHere’s EVERYTHING you really need to know about it via their breathless press release…

 The story of an elite group of pilots competing to be the best in their class and earn the title of “Top Gun” captured the imagination of moviegoers upon its release on May 16, 1986, ultimately earning a worldwide box office of over $350 million.  Tom Cruise is superb as the cocky but talented pilot Maverick and Kelly McGillis sizzles as the civilian instructor who teaches him a few things you can’t learn in a classroom.  Featuring a sensational soundtrack with unforgettable songs including Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” and Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”, the film also stars Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards and Meg Ryan.
An ideal Father’s Day gift, the TOP GUN 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray Combo Steelbook presents the film with pristine high definition picture and sparkling sound.  The Blu-ray Combo Pack includes Danger Zone: The Making of Top Gun, a behind-the-scenes featurette, a survival training featurette, interviews with Tom Cruise, four music videos, commentary by producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Tony Scott, co-screenwriter Jack Epps, Jr. and naval experts, a look inside the real “Top Gun” and more.
