Say no more, mon amour! The 20th anniversary of timeless cult flick Empire Records is nigh, and what better way to celebrate than with a theme party on “Rex Manning Day”?
BBQ Films is throwing a two-day birthday bash at Rough Trade in Brooklyn, and it’ll include a bunch of tasty treats, such as sexy Rexy autographs, a screening of Empire Records, a head shaving station, and a live set from the Empire house band (which we can only hope plays hits from the film, like the version of “Sugar High” with Gina’s bit in the chorus). Much like 1:37pm, it sounds like an excellent time.
This shot of 90s nostalgia is slated for April 8 and 9. Tickets are $42 and go on sale tomorrow at noon. More event perks can be found here.
The fat man walks alone.
