It’s Rex Manning Day at The Granada

Not that long ago, Ethan Embry was a thing and Liv Tyler was another thing. Oh, and Renee Zellewegger was a thing that wasn’t even Bridget Jones. Anyway, they all worked in a record store called Empire Records that was about to be bought out by Music Town, basically the living breathing incarnation of the establishment. You have to remember this was the height of the grunge movement, and if there was anything to rage against, it was the establishment. That and hygiene. One of the employees catches wind of the buyout and hatches a plan to save the store then fails miserably. The next day, the other store kids hatch an actual plan that just … might … work. See Empire Records at the Granada Theater at 7:30 p.m. Thursday to find out if flannel really can save the day. Then shop the CD World pop up shop in the Granada lobby and head over to Sundown after the movie for a double-double '90s set featuring hip hop and R&B. Tickets are available at
Thu., April 9, 7:30 p.m., 2015
