If you were sitting around wondering if the guys who brought you Airplane! and The Naked Gun are crazy, the answer is ‘yes.’ And TOP SECRET! proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt!

TOP SECRET! pits American rock star Nick Rivers (Val Kilmer) against the dreaded East German High Command. It’s a race against time as Nick teams up with Hillary Flammond (Lucy Gutteridge) to find her father before he can create the ultimate super weapon – the Polaris Mine. Along the way, TOP SECRET! manages to do for war epics and Elvis films what Airplane! did to disaster movies.

Screening as part of our Autumn 2019 series, “Waverly Midnights: Spy Games.”
