Win tickets to see ‘Top Gun’ in IMAX 3D

Breakthrough Thinking Broadcasting Network, in conjunction with Phoenix Movie Examiner, is giving its readers an opportunity to win a pair of tickets to see “Top Gun” in IMAX 3D in celebration of the 1986 classic’s brief big screen run before its Blu-ray release

“Top Gun” tells the story of an elite group of pilots competing to be the best in their class. Tom Cruise stars as a cocky but talented pilot while Kelly McGillis plays a civilian instructor who teaches him a few things that you cannot learn in a classroom. Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards and Meg Ryan also star.

The movie grossed more than $350 million at the worldwide box office during its original theatrical release. Now a never-before-seen limited 3D edition of the movie will debut Tuesday, Feb. 19 on Blu-ray. But before that, the movie will hit IMAX screens throughout the Valley for an exclusive 6-day engagement beginning Friday, Feb. 8.

One lucky Breakthrough Thinking Broadcasting Network Listener and a guest of their choice will see it for free. For your chance to win, first subscribe to the Phoenix Movie Examiner e-newsletter (if you have not already done so). Then send an e-mail to with the name of Cruise’s character from the film as well as your name and the city in which you reside.

A winner will be selected by random draw from all entries with the correct answer. E-mails must be received by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 31. The winner will be notified by e-mail during the day of Thursday, Feb. 1 with instructions on how to receive their tickets.
