Have you ever dreamed of watching Top Gun on New York’s most famous aircraft carrier? Well, now you can. For the last eight years, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Complex has been holding outdoor movie screenings for free.

But it is important to note that room is limited and tickets are handed out on a first come first serve basis. Visitors are allowed to bring their own food, non-alcoholic beverages, blankets and chairs. This summer, the Intrepid goes into deep space, with Star Trek (2009), Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Galaxy Quest. Check the website for further listings.
