Overview

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Sound Garden in Fells Point, the SNF Parkway Theatre is hosting a 35mm double feature of cult classics Empire Records and High Fidelity — the best films ever made about working in record store. Don’t miss this once-in-a-quarter-century screening with lotsa fun, lotsa craft beer (and other drinks), and lotsa other good stuff. HIGH FIDELITY screens first at 7:00 PM. Rob Gordon (John Cusack) is the owner of a failing record store in Chicago, where he sells music the old-fashioned way, on vinyl, with his two wacky clerks – music snob Rob (Jack Black) and the more quietly opinionated underachiever Dick. Although they have an encyclopedic knowledge of pop music and are consumed by the music scene, it’s of no help to Rob, whose needle skips the love groove when his long-time girlfriend, Laura (Iben Hjejle), walks out on him. As he examines his failed attempts at romance and happiness, the process finds him being dragged, kicking and screaming, into adulthood. EMPIRE RECORDS screens second at 9:45 PM. 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.
