'Hot Shots' 25th Anniversary with Jim Abrahams and Pat Proft, moderated by Henri Mazza

Yes, it's been 30 years since "Top Gun." But never mind that. It's been 25 years since the hysterical parody "Hot Shots!" debuted and we're celebrating!

Watch as Topper Harley (Charlie Sheen) flips for Ramada (Valeria Golino), goes to war, and saves the day alongside cohorts Kent (Cary Elwes), Wash-Out (Jon Cryer) and Admiral Tug Benson (Lloyd Bridges, in a hilarious and ridiculous performance).

Legendary comedy filmmakers Jim Abrahams and Pat Proft will be on hand for a special screening and Q&A. Director and co-writer Jim Abrahams is 1/3 of the infamous ZAZ trio, alongside David Zucker and Jerry Zucker, who created the comedies "Airplane!, "The Naked Gun," "Kentucky Fried Movie" and "Top Secret." Co-writer Pat Proft co-wrote the "Naked Gun" trilogy as well as the screenplays for "Police Academy" and "Bachelor Party." $10 All Ages
