National Chains Are Bringing 'Purple Rain' Back to Movie Theaters for Special Run - Find Out if It's Coming to Your City

Purple Rain

National theater chains Carmike Cinemas and AMC Theaters have both scheduled special, limited screenings of Prince’s Oscar and Grammy award-winning "Purple Rain" (1984) starting tomorrow, Saturday, April 23 through Thursday, April 28. The film will be presented on the big screen, as it was meant to be seen, for fans to gather, remember and experience as a community this once-in-a-lifetime artist who burst onto the scene with his very first film, 1984’s quasi-autobiographical "Purple Rain."

"Purple Rain" will be presented in over 100 theaters across the country. A list of locations is below. More theatres might be added, so fans are encouraged to check their local listings for availability in their area, if you don’t see a theater near you listed here.
