Wrap up your Record Store Day spree at your library with a screening of All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records.

Established in 1960, Tower Records was once a retail powerhouse with two hundred stores, in thirty countries, on five continents and eventually became the heart and soul of the music world, and a powerful force in the music industry. In 1999, Tower Records made $1 billion. In 2006, the company filed for bankruptcy. What went wrong?

"All Things Must Pass" is an examination of this iconic company's explosive trajectory, tragic demise, and legacy forged by its rebellious founder Russ Solomon. Find out the inside story of this music industry powerhouse with this acclaimed 2015 documentary, which is not rated.
