Top Gun

  • Brighton Race Course (map)

Gates Open: 17:30 - Film Starts: 18:45

Devil-may-care navy pilot Pete Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is sent to Miramar Naval Air Station for advanced training. Here he vies with Tom Kasansky (Val Kilmer) for the coveted "Top Gun" award. When not so occupied, Mitchell carries on a romance with civilian consultant Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis).

Shaken up by the death of a friend, Mitchell loses the Top Gun honor to Kasansky. Worried that he may have lost his nerve, Mitchell is given a chance to redeem himself during a tense international crisis involving a crippled US vessel and a flock of predatory enemy planes. The story wasn't new in 1986, but Top Gun scored with audiences on the strength of its visuals, especially the vertigo-inducing aerial sequences. The film made more money than any other film in 1986 and even spawned a 1989 takeoff, Hot Shots.

An Academy Award went to the Giogio Moroder-Tom Whitlock song "Take My Breath Away."

They don’t come much better than this for classic American films to see at the Drive-in. Make sure you grab your mates, family or partner for a night of American 80’s nostalgia.

THE VENUE

For over 250 years, Brighton Racecourse has hosted racing, with The Prince of Wales (George IV) encouraging its popularity in the late 1700’s and allowing the racecourse and city to thrive.

Brighton Racecourse is situated on Whitehawk Hill, around 1 mile away from the coast, and originates back to 1783, when the first official race was held in the area. The site has become more than just a racecourse. Investing in it's facilities has made it one of the leading venues in the south.

Set within 20 acres of beautiful countryside and with stunning views over the city and English Channel, Brighton Racecourse has the huge benefit of a fantastic setting to accompany our exciting events.

 

No food & Drink Allowed (Food & Drink sold onsite only)

Bar, hot food & drinks available

Please be aware that if possible we will give space next to cars for outside seating,         although this is   not guaranteed and is only if we have enough space on the night. These events are very popular so it depends on the number on the night. (These are not guaranteed,  but will be given whenever possible)


HOW IT ALL WORKS ON THE NIGHT

We make things as easy as they can be, because not only do you like it like that, so do we. So with that in mind, so are our Drive-in Screenings, simply get to the venue with ample time to spare before the start of your film, our front of house team will be waiting for you and when ready will direct you into your designated parking spot for the evening.

Then it’s just a case of switch off your engine, recline your seat, crack open your window and sit back relax and get ready for a night of fun with a must see classic blockbuster or two.
