Air Force Museum in Ohio to host film festival

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Flight and film combine in the inaugural Reel Stuff Film Festival of Aviation coming to the Air Force Museum in southwest Ohio.

The festival will be held April 11-14 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton.

It will mark the public re-opening of the museum's 400-seat, giant-screen theater after an $800,000 renovation.

Among the 10 screenings confirmed so far are the Wright Brothers dramatization, "First in Flight," silent classic "Wings," and "Top Gun 3D" a high-definition 3D update of the 1986 movie starring Tom Cruise. Each movie will be presented by a filmmaker or historian, with audience question-and-answer periods after the showings.

Tickets and passes go on sale Friday.
