Bring your blanket or lawn chair and maybe a picnic for the first movie in the free Cinema by the Canal series. The 1986 classic “Top Gun” will be shown on Thursday July 12 at dusk in Lewes Canalfront Park, located at 211 Front Street in Historic Lewes, on the banks of the beautiful Lewes-Rehoboth Canal. The movie, known for its heart-stopping aerial scenes, is free thanks to the support of Citizen's Bank and Friends of Lewes Canalfront Park.

Devil-may-care Navy pilot Maverick played by Tom Cruise is sent for advanced training where he vies with for the coveted "Top Gun" award. When not so occupied, Mitchell carries on a romance with civilian consultant Charlie played by Kelly McGillis. Shaken up by the death of a friend, Maverick loses the Top Gun honor. Thinking he may have lost his nerve, Maverick is given a chance to redeem himself during a tense international crisis involving a crippled US ship and a group of enemy planes.

Also mark your July calendar for other free events in the Park, Concerts by the Canal on Thursdays August 3 (The Plate Scrapers) and August 31 (Clifford Keith Band), Cinema by the Canal Thursdays August 10 (Brave) and August 24 (Jaws), and Play in the Park-Peter Pan on Thursday, August 17.
