Oh Rexy, you’re so sexy! It’s Rex Manning Day, that special day in the 1995 film Empire Records in which washed-up pop star Rex Manning (Maxwell Caufield) did a special appearance at the record store and ended up helping feed into the chaos of the day. How better to mark such a special occasion than with a rewatch of the cult classic ’90s movie?
If you don’t have a DVD or VHS copy of the film you can dust off, never fear! You have digital options. Empire Records is available for rent and purchase at practically every digital movie retailer (Amazon Prime, Vudu, Apple TV, and even YouTube). However, if you’re looking for a free way to check out the movie that helped launch the careers of Liv Tyler, Renée Zellweger, Ethan Embry, and more, you’re in luck.
