Get ready to party like it’s 1984 as we celebrate the Prince-ly anniversary of Purple Rain with a sing-a-long extravaganza that we’re unleashing on the same day the film opened in theatres 35 years ago!  Get your funk on with a sing-a-long screening of Purple Rain, a Prince music video salon, a Prince costume contest and purple glow sticks for everyone! Purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka and then get down to The Loft Cinema for a night of purple-tinted partying you’ll never forget!

Purple Rain irresistibly exudes sex, sweat and swagger in equal measure.” – Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing

In Purple Rain, His Royal Badness stars as “The Kid,” a hard luck boy from Minneapolis who dresses like a sexy pirate and is desperate to catch his big break and launch his musical career. He’s also desperate for love and really angry about his messed up parents, who fight the way doves cry (or something like that). Luckily, he meets a beautiful young singer named Apollonia and it seems like everything just might work out. But the road to stardom is never smooth, and things are going to get a bit bumpy for our hard-rocking hero before he’s able to bathe in the Purple Rain! At this special screening, you’ll become a “Sexy MF” for the night as you sing along to the movie’s amazing array of Prince hits, including When Doves Cry, Darling Nikki, Let’s Go Crazy, I Would Die 4 U, and more! The words will be right there on the big screen, so all you’ll have to worry about is feeling the funk. Before the film, we’ll get you in a purple mood with a scalding hot collection of vintage Prince music videos! (Dir. by Albert Mangoli, 1984, USA, 111 mins., Rated R)
