A real-life version of Top Gun, with all of the astounding photography, drama, and heroics, The Blue Angels is best experienced on Cinestudio’s expansive screen! This heart-stopping documentary follows the newest class of the storied Navy and Marine Corps flight squadron, that thrill viewers by flying 22-ton jets 12 inches apart at 400 miles an hour.  It begins as the veterans choose a class of trainees (including Amanda Lee, the first woman member) and lead them through intense training and into a season of heart-stopping aerial artistry. From the veterans on the team, who are preparing for their final flight, they learn that the Angels’ amazing technical feats can only be accomplished with bravery, teamwork and complete trust. “Breathtaking – The first-person perspectives from each pilot are both exhilarating and nerve-wracking.” Todd Gilchrist, Variety.
