Paramount Summer Classic Film Series presented by Capital Metro

Purple Rain

1984 | 111 min. | Color | DCP
Director: Albert Magnoli
Cast: Prince, Apollonia Kotero, and Morris Day

The late, great Prince Rogers Nelson soared to another level of superstardom thanks to this semi-autobiographical story of “The Kid,” a talented young front man of a Minneapolis band who immerses himself in his music. In addition to the film being an instant cult classic, the album is still the sixth-best-selling soundtrack of all time.

Doors: 8:15pm | Film: 8:45pm

Tickets: $12
Film Fan Admission: $8
FLIX-TIX: 10 admissions for $60 ($50 for Film Fans)

Enjoy Prince - Up Close & Personal interviews on the big screen the half hour before the film + fun prizes courtesy of our friends at Wild About Music for those rocking Prince-inspired costumes. Stop by our very purply photo booth and check out our drink special, “The Dove’s Tear” (Tito’s, Sprite, splash of red wine), available for purchase at the bar.

Double Feature: This film is a part of a Double Feature with Stop Making Sense at 7:00. When two movies that are screening in the same theatre are grouped under the same thematic heading, one ticket is good for both features when viewed back-to-back on the same day (except as noted).
