0000-hot-shots

Press Release:

Yes, it’s been 30 years since “Top Gun.” But never mind that. It’s been 25 years since the hysterical parody “Hot Shots!” debuted and we’re celebrating!

Watch as Topper Harley (Charlie Sheen) flips for Ramada (Valeria Golino), goes to war, and saves the day alongside cohorts Kent (Cary Elwes), Wash-Out (Jon Cryer) and Admiral Tug Benson (Lloyd Bridges, in a hilarious and ridiculous performance).

Legendary comedy filmmakers Jim Abrahams and Pat Proft will be on hand for a special screening and Q&A at the Castro Theatre on Saturday, January 9, 2016 at 7:00 PM. Director and co-writer Jim Abrahams is 1/3 of the infamous ZAZ trio, alongside David Zucker and Jerry Zucker, who created the comedies “Airplane!, “The Naked Gun,” “Kentucky Fried Movie” and “Top Secret.” Co-writer Pat Proft co-wrote the “Naked Gun” trilogy as well as the screenplays for “Police Academy” and “Bachelor Party.”

DC – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Signs

Mycroft-Holmes

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar signs at Politics and Prose on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at 11:00 am.

In his first novel for adults, the NBA-legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, author of On the Shoulders of Giants and, not-incidentally, a long-time fan of the Holmes mysteries, focuses on Sherlock’s older, smarter but, according to Arthur Conan Doyle, less industrious, brother. In 1870, however, Mycroft is working hard at the War Office in London and already showing a distinct knack for international diplomacy. When news of strange deaths in Trinidad sends him overseas to investigate, he’s drawn into a puzzle that may involve supernatural beings.

The line for this signing will form outside the bookstore beginning at 10 a.m..

No posed photos will be allowed, but customers may take photos as they move through the signing line.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will be signing books only, no memorabilia.
