All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records

1h 34m Documentary, Music 2015

Established in 1960, Tower Records was once a retail powerhouse with two hundred stores, in thirty countries, on five continents. From humble beginnings in a small-town drugstore, Tower Records 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?

Everyone thinks they know what killed Tower Records: The Internet. But that’s not the story. “All Things Must Pass” is a feature documentary film examining this iconic company’s explosive trajectory, tragic demise, and legacy forged by its rebellious founder Russ Solomon.

“A documentary that inspires long, gauzy gazes back to the carefree, youthful past of viewers of a certain age.” ~Odie Henderson,
