This summer, it turns out the fastest way to get to Championship Vinyl is via Tremont Street.
On June 23, John Cusack’s 2000 record store flick High Fidelity not only will be projected onto the big screen at the Boch Center, but the cult favorite actor, who plays our favorite disgruntled, romantically-challenged store owner Rob Garden, comes along for the ride to field a post-movie Q&A on his career and the film’s production. If there was ever an excuse to buy tickets to a record store rom-com, it’s now.
Jack Black unfortunately (fortunately?) isn’t included in the complete High Fidelity live package, although diehard fans can pay a little extra for VIP seats that include post-show photo ops with Cusack. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (March 23) at 10 a.m.
Brush up on the musical nostalgia with the original so-2000-it-hurts-trailer below, and use this as a great excuse to re-read Nick Hornby’s remarkable book that inspired the film.
