As kewl kids of Shoreditch, we obviously know about things like Future Cinema. Yep. They "specialise in bringing events to life through a unique fusion of film, improvised performances, detailed design and interactive multimedia..." which, obviously means awesome. And, for us meant arriving at Canary Wharf on a crisp Sunday arvo to find the whole shebang recreated to be 1986 Top Gun Academy. It was epic. They had the the volleyball courts (i read somewhere they shipped in 79 tonnes of sand. woah), the locker-rooms, the karaoke bars (and we'd all had to learn the words to "You've Lost that Loving Feeling" beforehand which was belted out through the day) and all the trimmings of a Californian fair ground to boot. You could even get a buzz cut there. by a man dressed in a Navy outfit. winning.
There were hundreds of actors who'd do little performances and just be all Top Gun-y all day before eventually showing the movie to the full 4000 people. Yes. 4000. I'm beginning to realise that london is not small. not small at all.

|Men look better when dressed for Top Gun. Fact.|
|When it got dark and they eventually played the movie, and Goose died... the whole 'cast'|
did a full Navy-style funeral procession complete with crying Meg Ryan. Gosh.
