Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Nov 8th at 5:30 for All Things Must Pass at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Eric wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Established in 1960, Tower Records was once a retail powerhouse with two hundred stores in thirty countries on five continents. From humble beginnings in a small-town drugstore, Tower Records eventually became the heart and soul of the music world and a powerful force in the music industry. In 1999, Tower Records made $1 billion. In 2006, the company filed for bankruptcy. What went wrong? Everyone thinks they know what killed Tower Records: the Internet. But that’s not the story. All Things Must Pass is a feature documentary examining this iconic company’s explosive trajectory, tragic demise and legacy forged by its rebellious founder Russ Solomon.
