Rhino Resurrected: The Incredibly Strange Story of the World’s Most Famous Record Store (WORLD PREMIERE & RECORD SWAP MEET!)!)

“Go to Rhino Records on Westwood Boulevard…” – Wild Man Fischer.

Rhino Resurrected is the iconoclastic story of a ramshackle little record store that became a hub of hardcore music misfits, a launching pad for influential music careers, and a groundbreaking and irreverent record label revered by music lovers worldwide. The inspiration for the film came last spring when the founder of Rhino, Richard Foos, opened a “pop-up” record store that tried to re-create the “Rhino” vibe and quickly turned into a celebration of and elegy for a music culture that’s all but lost. The film features killer live performances from Richard Thompson, Mike Watt, Peter Case, Little Willie G and thee Midnighters, Temple City Kazoo Orchestra and so much more – it’s a must see for any LA music fan! Join us for a Q&A with director Keith Shapiro, executive producer Bill Fishman and some very special Rhino guests after the screening — as well as for a RECORD SWAP MEET on the Cinefamily patio after the screening; bring a box or crate of your best vinyl to sell or trade! (Table space is limited, best to bring your own table.) Plus, Now Sounds/Luxuria Music DJ (and former Rhino art director) Steve Stanley spins before and after the film!
Dir. Keith Shapiro, 2011, digital presentation, 73 min.
