The Vidiots Foundation presents the director’s cut of “Top Secret!” — screened only once before and not available on DVD. The movie will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers: Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker, on Sunday May 31st at 7 p.m.

Starring Val Kilmer and Omar Sharif, the 1984 spy spoof, “Top Secret!” has become a cult classic.

Jim Abrahams and the Zucker Brothers make up the creative trio behind the success of such films as “Airplane!,” “The Naked Gun” and “Ruthless People.”

The Q&A will be a fundraiser for the Vidiots Foundation. The mission of the Vidiots Foundation is to preserve the human experience of browsing, researching and selecting films in a community setting.
