Whenever people ask me, "What's your dream job?" I always have the same answer: duh, working at Empire Records! What could be better than spending your days rocking out to 90s alterna, throwing fake funerals, yelling "SHOPLIFTER!" and, most importantly, celebrating Rex Manning Day?
This movie never fails to make me nostalgic for the '90s, a time when Liv Tyler was just that chick from the Aerosmith videos and Renee Zellweger was not yet a bobblehead. Back then, you could say "Fight the Man!" and listen to the Gin Blossoms without being ironic.
So if you've ever found yourself doing the Lucas dance or gluing quarters to the floor as an "artistic statement," join us for this special Forever Fest screening of EMPIRE RECORDS, where yelling "Oh Rexy, you're so SEXY!" will be highly encouraged.
Due to an unforseen scheduling conflict, Ethan Embry will not be in attendance.
