For more than a quarter of a century, Tony Scott (1944-2012) was one of Hollywood's most bankable directors. When his debut feature THE HUNGER hit screens, its visual flair caught the eye of producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, who tapped Scott to helm TOP GUN, the first of a string of blockbusters from the trio including BEVERLY HILLS COP II and DAYS OF THUNDER. Join us at the Aero Theatre for a retrospective tribute to Tony Scott, which also includes MAN ON FIRE, TRUE ROMANCE and CRIMSON TIDE.

For her filmmaking talents, witticisms, and her personal charm, Nora Ephron (May 19, 1941 - June 26, 2012) was a longtime favorite of the Hollywood creative community. While real-life drama SILKWOOD earned her one of three Oscar nominations, she's best remembered for her deft touch with romantic comedy, as in WHEN HARRY MET SALLY, SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, and YOU'VE GOT MAIL).
