MA – High Fidelity Screening + Q&A

John Cusack appears in conversation with Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr following a screening of High Fidelity at the Boch Center on Saturday June 23rd at 7:30 PM.

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.

UK – Dull Margaret Signing

Actor Jim Broadbent and cartoonist Dix appear on Wednesday, 27th June at 6:30 PM at Waterstones Piccadilly.

The Academy Award-winning actor, Jim Broadbent and Guardian cartoonist Dix have joined forces to create their first graphic novel, Dull Margaret.

Dull Margaret was inspired by Dulle Griet, a 16th-century painting by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. She is a damaged soul, struggling to navigate a perplexing world. She’s disliked and shunned by her neighbours, and is soon sent to live far away from civilization where she begins to brew her own potions, wishing for friendship and fortune. But, she needs to be wary of what she wishes for, as her magic propels her into a number of dark twists and turns.

Intense and humorous, Dull Margaret is one of the most anticipated and unexpected graphic novels of 2018.

Jim Broadbent is a highly-acclaimed British actor who has starred in many films and television features, including Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. He was inspired to write Dull Margaret after becoming fixated on the mysterious landscapes and marshes of Lincolnshire.

Dix is best known for his cartoons and illustrations which are featured in the Guardian, as well as co-creating KLAXON, another graphic novel.

Please join Jim and Dix for what promises to be a humorous, dark and inspiring evening.

Tickets are £25.99 and include a copy of Dull Margaret, or cost £5.00 for general admission.

Please note: only copies of the authors books will be signed, no other merchandise will be signed.

Don’t wait to pre-purchase Val Kilmer photo-ops and autographs. He will be attending all three days, but we’re expecting a lot of fans will want to meet such an incredible actor. So, start planning your weekend today.

For a short period of time, photo-ops and autographs for Robbie Coltrane were paused. They are back up and available through ShowClix for autographs or Epic Photo Ops for photo-ops.

NY – Mick Foley: 20 Years of Hell

Mick Foley appears at Laugh It Up on Friday, June 15th at 8:00 PM.

Climb on board the “TWENTY YEARS OF HELL” tour for a thrill ride TWENTY YEARS in the making – as Mick Foley, professional wrestling’s hardcore legend, takes audiences along for an in-depth look at the most famous match of his hall-of-fame career – and perhaps, the most talked about match in sports-entertainment history.

With his trademark blend of wit and wisdom, wildness and warmth that shot two of his memoirs to the top of The New York Times best-seller list, Foley will use every tool in his arsenal – dozens of classic promos, hundreds of hours onstage, thousands of matches, and almost a MILLION published words – to weave a spell-binding web of stories, designed to take fans along on a journey back to June 28, 1998 – the night of the infamous “Hell in a Cell” match. It was the night that Foley somehow survived two spine rattling falls off of, and through the ominous Cell structure, shrugged off a stint of unconsciousness, and finished the match with a front tooth lodged in his nose. Finding humor in the most unlikely of places, “TWENTY YEARS OF HELL” brings the laughs, but is much more than just a comedic one-man show. He will make you feel like you are there…RIGHT THERE – in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, watching history write itself. By equal turns laugh out loud funny, stunningly surreal and heart wrenchingly real, “TWENTY YEARS OF HELL” is a once in a lifetime chance to hear wrestling’s finest story-teller talking about the night he walked down an aisle a wrestler, and walked away a legend.

Each show begins with Mick’s recollections of wrestling in the town he is performing in and will conclude with a candid 30-45 minute Q&A where all subjects are fair game.

VIP Ticket Includes: Meet and greet with photo op and autograph.
