Colin Hanks Explores Cult and Influence of Tower Records in Film

With a DJ spinning vinyl tracks and attendees browsing music in racks, the famed music retailer Tower Records came back to life for one night only in Austin, Texas this week, to celebrate a documentary on the rise and fall of a music giant. "All Things Must Pass," the first documentary feature by actor Colin Hanks, chronicles the chain spawned by Russ Solomon out of his father's Sacramento drugstore in 1960, and its global expansion before a bankruptcy filing in 2006 and eventual closure. Growing up in Sacramento, Hanks, son of actor Tom Hanks, said he used to browse music for hours and even saw the movie "Fargo" at a Tower movie theater, two decades before he was cast as one of the leads in FX's 2014 "Fargo" TV series.
