EMPIRE RECORDS

Assistive Listening T Hearing Loop
EMPIRE RECORDS

Part of Midnight Movies.

A funky little record shop provides the setting for this youthful comedy that centers on the store’s workers as they try to help the poor manager (Joe Anthony LaPaglia), who really wants to buy the place, recoup his losses after his well-meaning, but dim-bulbed employee Lucas (Rory Cochrane ) steals his savings and loses it all in Atlantic City while trying to increase it twofold at the gaming tables. If they cannot come up with the loot, the mega-chain Music City will buy Empire Records.

In celebration of Record Store Day, we present this cult classic of 90s alt-rock angst about rebelling against the corporatization of music and small businesses. 
Pre-show 90s karaoke sing-along (11:45pm start time) and 90s music trivia at midnight, with prizes supplied by Grimey's.

“A tacky but charming teen movie bursting with dopey innocence...” —Nathan Rabin, A.V. Club
