Liv and Let Liv 

Upon its release in 1995, Empire Records grossed a paltry $273,188 at the box office. Over the years, however, the movie has attracted a devoted cult following. For those who blinked and missed its theatrical run, it makes for an entertaining Where Were They Then? feature, starring pre-Without a Trace Anthony LaPaglia, pre-Jerry Maguire Renée Zellweger and pre-Middle Earth Liv Tyler (fresh from her old man's Aerosmith videos) among a plucky crew trying to save an independent record store from the evil clutches of corporate America. Coming-of-age high jinks ensue, and more than a few John Hughes parallels are drawn. Tonight and Saturday at 9 p.m., Screenland at the Crossroads (1656 Washington) gives you two chances to remember when it was all about the music, man. Tickets cost $6. For more information, see screenland.com or call 816-421-9700. Fri., Jan. 2, 9 p.m.; Sat., Jan. 3, 9 p.m., 2009
