Outdoor screening 2

Gulbenkian announces FREE outdoor cinema screening for students with action-packed 80’s hit Top Gun!

The Gulbenkian Arts Centre and Gulbenkian Uncovered feel the need, the need for speed and invite you to be up there with the best of the best for a FREE, special outdoor screening of Top Gun that will Take Your Breath Away, on Tuesday 21st September during Welcome Week 2021. Adrenaline packed and incredible entertaining, Top Gun has become an iconic ’80s action film – don’t miss seeing it on the big outdoor screen on the lawn outside Gulbenkian.

Starring Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, and Michael Ironside, the cast is pretty good but the real stars of the film are the F-14 fighter jets, and director Tony Scott does an excellent job at capturing the intensity and excitement of the aerial manoeuvres. The soundtrack is also especially well-done, and features such hit songs as “Danger Zone” and “Take My Breath Away”, which picked up the Oscar for Best Music, Original Song.

As an outdoor event, bring a blanket, something to sit on and dress for the outdoors – we recommend dressing warmly – even bring a hot water bottle as the temperature drops.  Make yourself comfortable and settle in for an evening of film under the stars.

Bar service will be available and a range of snacks and hot food will be available to buy at the screening.

Tuesday 21st September, 7:30 pm: Student Event: Outdoor Cinema Screening – Top Gun (12A)
Gulbenkian, Gulbenkian Lawn
Tickets: Free for Students of the University of Kent as part of Welcome Week 2021
