In celebration of the life and genius of Prince, The Nuart presents a special midnight screening of the classic Purple Rain. Prince stars as “The Kid” in this semi-autobiographical film, which follows the escapades of a tortured young musician trying to survive in a dysfunctional environment. He finds solace in the affections of a lovely young singer Apollonia, but his first love is making his funky, unique brand of music, which he performs at an ultra-hip Minneapolis nightclub. The Kid must also contend with Morris, his nemesis both in music and romance. The popular soundtrack of this highly successful film contains many of Prince’s most popular tunes, such as “Let’s Go Crazy,” “When Doves Cry” and the title song we know so well.
