“Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called ‘Life!’” In celebration of Prince’s enormous impact on music, fashion, and the movies, we’re doing a FREE (or nearly free—we're still working out details) screening of Prince’s 1984 smash sensation Purple Rain! Prince stars in a thinly-veiled role as “The Kid,” a musical genius who falls in love with his singer Apollonia. Soon, The Kid’s self-destructive habits drive a wedge in their love, and The Kid must learn a lesson about love, through music. And what music! The film features a catalogue of Prince's hits, including I Would Die 4 U, When Doves Cry, Let's Go Crazy, and of course, Purple Rain. Often imitated, never duplicated—Prince, you will be missed!
