Movie star John Cusack will be in St. Paul next month for a conversation and Q&A with audience members about one of his most famous movies.

The Hollywood star will be at the Ordway Center's Music Theater for a screening of "Say Anything" at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Widely regarded as the movie that launched Cusack into stardom, the 1989 Cameron Crowe flick saw him play the role of Lloyd Dobler, the optimistic but underachieving student who falls for Valedictorian Diane Court, played by Ione Skye.

Cusack went on to have a hugely successful Hollywood career, with defining roles including "Grosse Pointe Blank," "High Fidelity," "Being John Malkovich" and "Hot Tub Time Machine" (ok not the last one, but it's an awesome movie).

At The Ordway, there will be a screening of "Say Anything" followed by a moderated discussion with Cusack, who will talk about the making of the film and his career.

There will also be the opportunity for audience questions, with the whole evening having a run-time of 175 minutes, with no intermissions.

Tickets range from $58 to $111.
