"We mustn't dwell. No, not today. We can't. Not on Rex Manning day!β
April 8th is officially Rex Manning Day, but Rexy is far too sexy for a Monday, so we're peaking a little prematurely!
Fortune & Glory Film Club invite you to reminisce on your former career aspirations of joining the COOLEST workplace in the world: Empire Records!
Joe (Anthony LaPaglia) runs Empire Records, an independent Delaware store that employs a tight-knit group of music-savvy youths. Hearing that the shop may be sold to a big chain, slacker employee Lucas (Rory Cochrane) bets a chunk of the store's money, hoping to get a big return. When this plan fails, Empire Records falls into serious trouble, and the various other clerks, including lovely Corey (Liv Tyler) and gloomy Deb (Robin Tunney), must deal with the problem, among many other issues.
Expect teen angst, 90's nostalgia, damning The Man, and (spoiler alert!) saving The Empire!
And on top of this, all the usual F&G gubbins:
β Goody Bags full of interactive surprises to use throughout the film!
β Loads of quote-along prompts!
β Drinking games
β Silly contests with great/crap prizes!
β A playlist inspired by the already awesome soundtrack!
β Costumes - whether they be pound shop tat or full Cosplay!
β The innuendo horn!
β Ip Dip Dog Shit DVDs!
**Tickets available SOON!**
Age 18+ (ID may be required)
We don't really revel in cinema, we frolic! Expect a shared experience, games, shouting silly stuff out, and (most importantly) a lot of laughs. BUT - there's no peer pressure here! You can join in as much or as little as you please.
