April 8 is an under-celebrated holiday. On this day alone, humans born before 1990 celebrate the day a washed-up rock star named Rex Manning was set to perform at the title store in the film Empire Records. I mean, it’s just a movie, right? Wrong. It’s a cult classic. And if you don’t understand, maybe you can just bite me. This Tuesday, don’t just fade away. Head to the rooftop of Sundown at Granada, 3520 Greenville Ave., for a free screening of Empire Records. The movie starts at 8 p.m., but if you want to get a seat, you’ll need to be there early. Or we might deep fry you in a vat of hot oil and serve you to the already seated guests.
