Purple Rain Screening Vancouver 2019

Purple Rain

It’s time to celebrate a legend. Come out to the Rio Theatre this June to mark the 35th anniversary of “the purple one’s” cinematic and musical triumph – Purple Rain!

Celebrate him and the wonderful legacy of his music with this iconic 80’s pop-culture phenomenon – on the big screen, and with their even bigger sound.


Get ready to sing along and go crazy with the beautiful ones in the Rio Theatre audience- costumes and 80’s attire welcome and oh-so-very encouraged.

Based loosely on his own life story, Prince‘s film debut in Purple Rain cast him as “The Kid,” the talented but troubled musician in Minneapolis struggling to make it big with his band, The Revolution.

The film was a box office hit, and possessed a fantastic soundtrack (including Oscar-winner ‘When Doves Cry’) that forever altered the course of his career. Many fans and critics consider the music of Purple Rain signature work, spawning numerous hit singles that would dominate airwaves for years to come.

Advance tickets are $10.50 and $12.50 at the door.

This film is rated 18A.
