Caroline Beteta, President and CEO of the California Travel & Tourism Commission says: “We look forward to welcoming the audience to the sights and sounds of California through this exciting collaboration with Future Cinema. ‘California Classics’ allows us to shine the spotlight on the unsung heroes of some of our best-loved movies – the locations – and invites the audience to experience them through a tourism lens. ‘The Lost Boys’ and ‘Top Gun’ both feature icons of California that are instantly recognizable and play such an important role in the films. Even though the movies are set in the 80s, they perfectly capture the diversity of the golden state with their portrayals of Northern and Southern California.”

The event will begin online with a fully interactive social web experience where audiences will join vampire gangs
and be recruited into the one of the most elite Navy Pilot programmes.
