For fans of John Cusack and “High Fidelity”, a visit to Championship Vinyl definitely would make a “top five” list. 

The hit comedy “High Fidelity” is the story of record shop owner Rob Gordon (John Cusack) on a search for love (and the reasons behind his failed relationships) against a backdrop of over 70 songs spanning multiple decades and genres of music. With – or without – the help of his record store buddies Dick (Todd Luiso) and Barry (Jack Black’s breakout role), Rob revisits past relationships in hopes of figuring out where he has gone wrong. Released in 2000, The New York Times praised John Cusack as “a master at easygoing camaraderie.” Rotten Tomatoes has “High Fidelity” ranked #14 on the list of Best Romantic Comedies. 

Now, join John Cusack for a screening of “High Fidelity” on the big screen followed by a LIVE conversation regarding his career and the making of the film. Fans will get the opportunity to experience a moderated discussion, with John answering audience questions as well. A limited number of VIP seats will be available that include a post-show photo op with John.

Veteran Producer kickstarts $15 Million Campaign To Combat Abortion Bans

Published

It’s no secret Hollywood is outraged over anti-abortion laws being passed on the state level, especially when the industry’s new film capital Georgia followed suit.

Veteran producer Peter Chernin is turning the boycott up several notches. Chernin has reportedly launched a multi-million dollar campaign to combat the new legislation and is calling for major backing.

Chernin is partnering with ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero on the fundraising effort. The email seeks $15 million by July 1, according to Deadline.

“I am launching a campaign to contribute to the $15 million that is needed to fund the ACLU’s legal efforts to battle the national anti-abortion effort,” he wrote, according to The New York Times, which first reported the story. “We have a moral responsibility to act immediately.”

“We were conflicted about contributing to the health of an economy and a state that had declared war on the rights and freedom of its women. On one hand, if we chose the boycott route, thousands of jobs would be lost ultimately damaging workers who rely on production for livelihood, including many women. We also know that the only way to fight the massive, now national incursion on women’s rights is through a legal battle, a battle that needs funding and on the ground support via organizations like the ACLU who are powering up to overturn the law. So our choice became pretty clear we will stay in Georgia, stand shoulder to shoulder with the women of that state and the states under attack, and fight to win.”

Alabama, Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Utah have implemented the new bill in recent weeks.
