Dearly beloved, we are gathered here 2day 2 get through this thing called life. And to celebrate the legacy of the one and only Prince.
PURPLE RAIN is the semi-autobiographical tale of The Kid, a Minneapolis musician navigating the club scene while dealing with a romantic rival and a difficult family life. A massive hit upon release, it’s a showcase for the Purple One’s otherworldly musical, visual and sartorial stylings, and introduced the world to the glory of “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” and of course, “Purple Rain.”
As the man himself once sang, “U better live now.” Words 2 live by.
Academy Award winner for Best Original Score
We will be screening the short documentary Gotta Groove Records before Purple Rain.
