iFilm has some great news for lovers of all things ’80s–one of the films that cemented Tom Cruise as a leading man, “Top Gun”, is coming back to theaters!

According to the article, AMC will be celebrating the film’s 25 anniversary by hosting two screenings of the film on April 30 at 12:30 p.m. and May 2 at 7 p.m. in AMC theaters across the United States (although, sadly, that doesn’t include Alabama or several other states). Guests will also receive a “Top Gun” poster, while supplies last.

For those too young to know about “Top Gun”, the movie chronicles Maverick (Cruise), Iceman (Val Kilmer) and other top-notch, manly students of an elite U.S. flying school and their battle to see who’s the best flyer in the class. In between the macho rivalries between classmates, Maverick strikes of a romance with his teacher, Charlie (Kelly McGillis). Add some cheesy/awesome music, and you’ve got yourself an ’80s classic.

You can view more about the event at the official AMC Theaters website.

So, for the people that do have AMC theaters in your neck of the woods, are you excited? Are any of you “Top Gun” fans? Are you ready to go on the Highway to the Danger Zone? Sound off on this in the comments section below.
