    How did this movie do?
    Budget: $10 Million
    Box Office: $300 Thousand

  • Casting

    • Angelina Jolie was almost cast as Deb.

    • Tobey Maguire was cast in the movie but dropped out due to personal reasons.
  • Trivia

    • Rex Manning’s outfit was inspired by Tom Jones.

    • Robin Tunney Chose To Shave Her Head.

    • It was announced on April 6, 2018 that a musical adaptation of the movie was aiming for Broadway in 2020. The announcement stated that the show would be produced by Bill Weiner; music and lyrics by Zoe Sarnak and book by Carol Heikkinen, but it was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    • Rex Manning’s music video “Say No More, Mon Amour” was shot on Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina in one day. It was shot before principal photography, intended as a 17-second dance move piece for the main actors and actresses to make fun of. However, the music video director shot for the entire day, and gave the producers a four minute, thirty second music video.

    • The movie was originally filmed as two days, but it was cut and fit into one.

    • Coyote Shivers was married to Bebe Buell at the time, making him Liv Tyler’s stepfather.

    • The movie was written by a former employee of Tower Records store #166, at the Christown Mall in Phoenix, Arizona. Some of her former co-workers still working there cited anecdotes and other elements of this movie that related to the store for a long time after the movie’s release. The store closed in early 2005.

    • This movie was severely edited in post-production, removing three significant characters and up to 40 minutes of footage. The story was also condensed from occurring over two days to a single day.

    • The 2003 DVD re-release titled Empire Records Remix: Special Fan Edition featured newly-released scenes, new deleted scenes, special features including Rex Manning’s music video “Say No More, Mon Amour”. However, it also cut a few popular lines from the original release. The 2015 Blu-ray release returned to the original theatrical cut and includes the special features and extras from the 2003 Remix edition.

    • In one of the deleted scenes, the makeshift rooftop band is arrested and taken away. This was based on the real-life incident of The Beatles playing on top of the Apple Records building and being stopped by the police.

    • Warren was supposed to have a sister, but her scenes were deleted from the final cut.

    • When angrily leaving, Rex Manning’s parting words are “Why don’t you all just fade away?” which are lyrics from the song “My Generation” by The Who.

    • This movie was shot in Wilmington, North Carolina and a Hollywood studio. A warehouse district was used to recreate an exact replica of the Hollywood studio.

    • The Alice in Chains painting on the wall of the store, and which is later sold, is the cover art from the rock band’s debut album, “Facelift” (1990).

    • Celebrated annually on April 8, Rex Manning Day commemorates the day that washed-up 1980s pop idol Rex Manning (played by Maxwell Caulfield) visited the fictional Empire Records. On a previous Rex Manning Day in 2018, Ethan Embry confirmed the deeper meaning behind the decision for Empire Records to take place on April 8. “The reason we picked April 8th as the day to have Rex Manning visit Empire is because Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain, was found on the 8th of April, the day the music of the 1990s lost its mascot,” Embry said. Cobain was found dead on April 8, 1994, exactly a year before Empire Records took place.

    • The song playing during the set-up for Rex Manning Day was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles. The Buggles: Video Killed the Radio Star (1979) was the first video ever played on MTV when it debuted on August 1, 1981.

    • This movie is included among the IMDb Top 250 as of December 31, 1996.

    • Liv Tyler and Ethan Embry also appeared in That Thing You Do! (1996).

    • When Lucas uncovers the plans for “Music Town”, he says “in the immortal words of The Doors, “the time to hesitate is through'”, a line from their song “Light My Fire”.

    • The poster of the lady with a croquet mallet that’s hanging behind the register of the shop is from the album cover of “Nursery Cryme” (1971) from the rock band Genesis.

    • “Romeo and Juliet” by Dire Straits plays in this movie and Can’t Hardly Wait (1998). Ethan Embry appears in both movies.

    • Rex Manning was on a television show that was titled “The Family Way”. Maxwell Caulfield’s sister-in-law Hayley Mills starred in The Family Way (1966).

    • Debi Mazar and Anthony LaPaglia appeared in So I Married an Axe Murderer (1993).

    • Melissa Caulfield’s debut cinematic appearance.

    • In both this movie and Armageddon (1998), the love interests of the characters played by Liv Tyler are named A.J.

    • Rory Cochrane and Johnny Whitworth both appeared on CSI: Miami (2002).

    • Most of the actors and actresses in this movie, Anthony LaPaglia, Rory Cochrane, Johnny Whitworth, Robin Tunney, Ethan Embry and Ben Bode, were later cast as main characters or guest stars in one or more popular crime dramas.

    • On Rotten Tomatoes, the movie has an approval rating of 31% based on 35 reviews. The site’s consensus reads: “Despite a terrific soundtrack and a strong early performance from Renee Zellweger, Empire Records is mostly a silly and predictable teen dramedy.”

    • Cameo: Melissa Caulfield: The ballet dancer from an early scene is the stepdaughter of Maxwell Caulfield (Rex Manning).

    • When filming the scene in which Warren runs away from the store, his stunt double ran into the car door so hard that he cracked a rib.

    • A sign by the cash register that says “Have a nice daze” shows the logo for Rory Cochrane’s other movie Dazed and Confused (1993). Co-star James ‘Kimo’ Wills also appeared in the movie.

    • J. checks his pocket watch to see how much time he has left to tell Corey Mason he loves her at 1:37 p.m. The current time is shown as 1:30. Corey unwittingly joins him on the roof exactly seven minutes of runtime later, at “1:37 exactly”. She shows up on the roof six minutes of runtime later.

    • The true name of the character “Warren Beatty” is never revealed.

Countries: United StatesLanguages: English

Quotes

Warren: Who glued these quarters down?

A.J.: I did.

Warren: What the hell for, man?

A.J.: I don't feel that I need to explain my art to you, Warren.


Mark: We mustn't dwell... no, not today. We CAN'T. Not on Rex Manning day.


Mark: [into television camera] Damn the man. Save the Empire.


A.J.: What's with you? Yesterday you were normal and today you're like the Chinese guy from the Karate Kid. What's with you today?

Lucas: What's with today today?


[Joe is talking to the police about Warren]

Joe: [to Warren] How old are you?

Warren: Old enough to kick your butt through your skull and splatter your brains on the wall.

Joe: [to the cops on the phone] Yeah, he's a juvenile.


Mark: Hey, Lucas. I've decided I'm going to start a band.

Lucas: The first thing you need is a name. Then you'll know what kind of band you've got.

Mark: Right, right. I was thinking about, um, Marc. How does that sound?

Lucas: Is that with a C or with a K?

Mark: Well my name is with a

[checks his nametag]

Mark: K, so I was thinking my band's name could be with a C. That way it's kind of that psychedelic, you know, trip thing.

Lucas: Always play with their minds.


Warren: Stop calling me Warren! My name isn't FUCKING WARREN!

Eddie: His name isn't Warren.

Corey: His name isn't Warren.

Berko: His name isn't Warren.

Mark: I thought his name was Warren?


Debra: I went to rock and roll heaven, and I wasn't on the guest list.


Gina: Attention Rex Manning fans, to your left you will notice a shoplifter being chased by night manager, Lucas. This young man will be caught, deep fried in a vat of hot oil and served to our first hundred customers. Just another tasty treat from the gang at Empire Records.


Gina: Isn't it customary to leave the scene after committing the crime?

Debra: Definitely an amateur.


[Answering the phone]

Mark: Empire Records, open 'til midnight, this is Mark.

[pause]

Mark: Midnight.


Joe: I want you to take these

[CD's]

Joe: , hold 'em against your chest, stand against the wall, and they're gonna take a photograph of you.

Warren: Why don't you go shove 'em up your ass?

Lucas: ...Because it would hurt a lot, Warren.


Jane: Actually, his new album tested well among teenage males.

Lucas: Jane, did you compare the percentage of teenage male Rex Manning fans to the incidence of homosexuality amongst teenage males?


Jane: What are you doing later?

Joe: I don't know. I'm either going to jail or hell I can't decide.


Debra: No visible tattoos.

Gina: No revealing clothing.

Debra: We're both screwed. At least you're used to it.


Lucas: Mark, who's your favorite singer?

Mark: Axl.

Lucas: Well if Axl Rose was driving down the highway, and saw Rex Manning stranded on the side of the road, do you think Axl Rose would stop and help him?

Mark: [thinks] ... Does Axl have a jack?

Warren: No way man!... Axl would pound on the gas, turn the wheel, take aim, and take that sucker out!


[Debra has just shaved her head]

Gina: Well "Sinead O'Rebellion." Shock me shock me shock me with that deviant behavior.

Debra: God, that is so clever. I swear you get smarter the shorter your skirt gets.

Gina: And you get smarter the shorter your hair gets, so it's probably a good thing you went with that. It's a wonderful look for you darling.


A.J.: Joe, I need to ask your advice. Now I know you know a lot about love and women and all that sort of thing...

Joe: Oh yeah, my wife left me for another woman and my girlfriend forced me to leave at gunpoint. Does this qualify me?

A.J.: Oh yeah, definitely.


A.J.: Mark, listening to this crap is guaranteed to make you sterile.

Mark: [under his breath] Maybe I want to be sterile.


Lucas: $9104. I counted it... twice.

Lady at Craps Table: I like your style.

Lucas: [proud, humble] Well Joe told me to count it twice...


Corey: Joe, you're the best boss in the world. Can I bring Rex his lunch?

Joe: Berko's taking him his lunch.

Corey: Um Joe, you know that Berko's gonna insult him to his face I don't think that's such a good idea.

Joe: I don't care if Berko sticks an M-80 up his butt and lights it. In fact, I hope he sticks one up mine, it might be an improvement.

Corey: Joe, I have to bring Rex his lunch.

Joe: Berko is.

Corey: Joe, I need to bring him his lunch.

Joe: Berko is.

Corey: [screams] I'M BRINGING REX HIS LUNCH!

[pause]

Joe: ...alright.


A.J.: Hi, what're you doing up here?

[Corey pushes A.J so he falls]

Corey: You listen to me! You're so special and you're so talented and you have everything it takes! You have MORE than everything it takes and you're REALLY stupid because you don't know that. And I know you don't love me anymore, and I know that I blew it but at least I know that, and if you don't go to art school and if you don't understand how special you are then you know nothing!

A.J.: Corey, I...

Corey: And I did love you, and I still... only I didn't realise that it really was love because it was more than love and it wasn't just some stupid feeling in my stomach like everything else and I'll never love anybody as much as you and I hate you! I hate you!

A.J.: Corey, I quit. I quit!

[pause]

A.J.: I'm going to art school, in Boston. So I can be near you.


Joe: Deb, what are you doing?

Debra: I just wanted to have a little chat with Warren.

Warren: Oh yeah? Well have a little chat with my gun.

Debra: [into the barrel of Warren's gun] What do you want Warren?

Warren: STOP CALLING ME WARREN. MY NAME ISN'T FUCKING WARREN.

Debra: Well you can't kill me 'cause I'm already dead. And I talked to God, and she says, "Yo, wassup?" and she wants you to lose the gun.

Warren: What? You are psycho. You're a psycho.


A.J.: You did have hair when you went in there, right?

Debra: Yeah. It's still in the sink, if you want to glue it.


Lucas: Warren, look what you took.

[going through the CD's that Warren stole from the store]

Lucas: Rap... metal... rap... metal... And Whitney Houston.

Warren: It's for my girlfriend, okay?

Lucas: Suuure it is. You know, someone like you needs to diminish their criminal impulses, not magnify them. Maybe some jazz or some classical.

Warren: Maybe you bite me.


Rex Manning: Why don't you all just fade away.


Eddie: They're my special recipe... and you know what that means... Lots of sugar.


[Lucas has just gambled away all Joe's money]

Lucas: I wonder if I'll be held responsible for this.


Gina: Oh now, Debra, don't be bitter, surely with your ever growing collection of flesh mutilating silver appendages and your brand new neo-nazi boot camp makeover the boys will come a-runnin'.


Lucas: The fat man walks alone.


Lucas: I do not regret the things I have done, but those I did not do.


Joe: Could you please not sing, Mark.

Mark: You know what Joe? One of these days, I'm gonna show you little people.

Joe: Yeah, well on that day I'm gonna jump outta my wheelchair and do a dance.

Mark: How 'bout today, huh? Rex Manning day.


Lucas: The long arm of the law has embraced our dear friend Warren.


Lucas: Joe, is it O.K. if I leave the couch? 'Cause I'm gonna leave the couch now, okay? My ass is falling asleep, so I gotta go. I'm leaving.


Debra: Hey Lucas, is it true you committed the perfect crime?

Lucas: Not entirely perfect.


Corey: So is this how your life's gonna be now, huh? You're just gonna screw every has-been until your tits fall down and they don't want you anymore?


Debra: I tried to kill myself with a Lady Bic. A pink plastic razor with daisies on it and a moisturizing strip.


Berko: [Warren is being taken to jail] Don't drop the soap, Warren.


A.J.: Lucas, do you think it's possible for a person to be in love with someone else and not even know it?

Lucas: In this life there are nothing but possibilities.

A.J.: Well, that's good, because I have to tell Corey I love her by 1:37.

Lucas: That's an excellent time.


Joe: [after Lucas enters] Lucas!

Lucas: Joe!

Joe: Where's the money?

Lucas: Joe, the money is gone.

Joe: Yeah, I know it's gone... but where's it gone to?

Lucas: Atlantic City.

Joe: Atlantic City?... Is it coming back from Atlantic City?

Lucas: [nervous laugh] Oh, I don't think so, Joe.

Joe: What's it doing in Atlantic City, Lucas?

Lucas: ...Recirculating.

Joe: Recirculating?

Lucas: Yeah.

[Joe knocks the donation cup that Lucas was carrying out of his hands and grabs his arm]

Joe: Lucas, listen to me. I told Mitchell Beck that you forgot to deposit the money. I told Mitchell that the money was still here.

Lucas: Joe, that's not true. It's in Atlantic City... I swear.

Joe: Shut up, sit down, and don't you move.

Lucas: [sitting down] It could be in other cities by now...

Joe: Oh, shut up! Under no circumstances do I want you to leave that couch... unless it's to get me $9000, and then you bring it here to me, okay?

Lucas: Okay. You know, I think things are gonna be all right now, Joe.

Joe: Oh? And what makes you think that.

Lucas: Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear.

[nodding]

Lucas: Mmhmm!

Joe: ...What a moron.


Lucas: I used to pee in my bed. I did. I, I wet my bed until I was ten. My mother turned me over to the county when I was ten to- not for being a bed wetter- but for being a bad seed. Anyways, 3 years went by, then Joe came. And he took me out, and I became the well adjusted person I am today.


Joe: Gina, you'd better go home.

Gina: Am I fired?

Joe: Have I fired anyone today? No. Why would I start with you?


Eddie: Can I ask you something? Do you know where Harvard is?

A.J.: It's near Boston.

Eddie: No I mean, do you really know where Harvard is? It's another planet man- another universe. Totally unlike the one we know. Filled with big blond guys who eat ivy and row boats. What I'm trying to say is, you and Corey just aren't made for each other. She's different from you.


[Wearing nothing but a MusicTown apron]

Gina: Welcome to MusicTown, may I service you?


Lucas: Mitchell's the man Joe.

Joe: And the man calls all the shots.

Lucas: Damn the man.

Joe: Let me explain it to you. Mitchell's the man. I'm the idiot. You're the screw-up. And we're all losers. Welcome to music town.


Warren: Me Joe, you Jane.


Corey: My dad always said that there's 24 usable hours in every day.


Eddie: This music is the glue of the world Mark. It's what holds it all together. Without this, life would be meaningless.

Mark: Hey, did you hear about Lucas?

Eddie: Hey Lucas man, I hear you went to Vegas and you married a mobster's wife and now you've got a hit on you and stuff. Is that true?

Lucas: Not entirely true.

Eddie: Well outlaw man, we solute you.

Lucas: Thank you Eddie.

Eddie: No problem.


Corey: I'm not like you, I don't need to do what you do with guys.

Gina: Oh, I see, not like me, the turbo-slut.


Lucas: Joe, I think it's gonna be okay.

Joe: What makes you think that?

Lucas: Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear.


High Roller: That's an 18,000 dollar bet, you sure you know what you're doin kid?

Lucas: I know this, that if I win this roll I will save the place that I work from being sold, and the jobs of my friends that work there. Thus striking a blow at all that is evil and making this world a better place to be in.

Lady at Craps Table: Huh?

Lucas: ...And I'll buy you guys a drink.


[after Joe beats Lucas up in his office]

Joe: Here.

[hands Lucas a washcloth]

Joe: You deserved that, you know that.

Lucas: Yeah, I know it.


Gina: Lucas, what are you doing in here?

Lucas: My life has reached its pinnacle. Joe is letting me close the store tonight.


Lucas: Joe, I can categorically say that you are not a bigger banana-head.


A.J.: ...you know, I got to tell her that I, uh, well, you know, that I uh...

Joe: love her.

A.J.: Yeah, now how do I do that?

Joe: You say I love you. What do you want, written instructions?


Lady at Craps Table: Feeling lucky?

Lucas: I am guided by a force much greater than luck.


[Debra comes out to take over from Corey with her newly shaved head]

Corey: Why'd you do that?

Debra: Just your typical nutty teenager in America...

[Debra lifts her arm to reveal her bandaged wrist]

Debra: Oh! Before you guys hear all about it.

Corey: That's supposed to be a joke, right?

Debra: No. You're the joke.


Lucas: In the immortal words of The Doors, 'The time to hesitate is through.'


Debra: I guess nobody really has it all together, huh?

Corey: No.

Debra: I feel like I should welcome you to the neighborhood or something. Anyway, did you really want to do Rex Manning in the count-out room? Is that how you always imagined your first time would be? Your back up against the daily totals and your feet pounding against the safe? 'Oh Rexy stop that. You're so sexy.'

Corey: Why are you being so nice to me?

Debra: Let's save our Hallmark moment.


[Corey left her bra]

Eddie: You forgot your thingy.


A.J.: Lucas, hey Lucas. Hey Lucas. What the hell are you doin' here, man?

Lucas: Something happened to me last night. In Atlantic City.

A.J.: Oh, you went to Atlantic City?

Mark: Wow! Did you win anything?

Lucas: No. I did not win. So if you guys ever wonder if it was nice to know you, I tell you now that it was.


[Wearing nothing but a Musictown apron]

Gina: I really think Musictown is torn on the revealing garment issue.


Mitch: Why do I get the feeling that I'm being royally screwed?

Joe: Because you are, Mitch.


Gina: I don't know it's just something I've always been able to do.

Rex Manning: Alright. What am I wearing now?

Gina: Jockies. Navy Blue. Am I right?

Rex Manning: I don't know.

Gina: Well why don't you check it out, and you let me know.


Joe: Where's Rex?

Debra: Got a better question for you, Joe. Where's Gina?

[Joe hears Gina in the xerox room with Rex]

A.J.: I'll look upstairs.

Debra: I'll check the bathroom.

Berko: I'll check the storage room.

Lucas: I'll check the sofa.


[about the CDs that Warren tried to shoplift]

Lucas: Rap, metal, rap, metal, Whitney Houston.


A.J.: You know that feeling when you get out of a warm bath... well... you make me feel like a bath?


Lucas: Do you know how many people there are out there?

A.J.: Well, about 6 billion.
