'Purple Rain' to screen at the Cedar Lee April 28th


With the untimely passing of yet another musical icon this year, the Cedar Lee Theatre will be mourning right along with Prince’s fans as it screens his 1984 classic film PURPLE RAIN on Thursday, April 28th at 7:30 PM.
 
“We’ve shown PURPLE RAIN a few times over the years as part of the Melt Bar & Grilled Late Shift Series,” says David Huffman, Cleveland Cinemas Director of Marketing and Late Shift programmer. “It’s a film that captured Prince at the height of his career and I can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to this legendary performer than to bring it back to the big screen.”
 
Prince Rogers Nelson was found dead at the age of 57 on April 21, 2016. Prince was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
 
Fans are encouraged to dress in purple when they attend the screening.
 
Tickets to see PURPLE RAIN are $6 and are on sale at the Cedar Lee Theatre or online at clevelandcinemas.com.

  1. Nobody seems to remember it, but Prince made a superior, staged-for-the-cameras concert feature called SIGN O'THE TIMES. Guest appearance by Sheena Easton, among other sexy femmes, for added 1980s cred. All hail anyone able to get a celluloid print of that one out of the closet and project it as a tribute. I rather thought it gets shown in Minneapolis every night somewhere anyway, the way TV used to sign off each night with the National Anthem.
