Following the heart-wrenching news about the untimely death of the artist formerly known as Prince, AMC Theatres announced a limited screening of Purple Rain, a 1984 film that finds Prince playing a young, aspiring musician. Named for Prince’s Oscar-winning pop album that bares the same name, Purple Rain is a semi-autobiographical tale of a man who uses music to escape his difficult home life.

AMC Theatres will screen the film from Saturday, April 23rd through Thursday, April 29th. Movie listings throughout the US are included below by state. Check in with local theatres for exact show times.
