A young musician, tormented by an abusive situation at home, must contend with a rival singer, a burgeoning romance and his own dissatisfied band as his star begins to rise.⁣

Join us for a discussion after the 6:30pm showing led by Bon Vals, administrator for Facebook group Prince and the PNW Fam. This group was created after the world lost "the greatest musical genius" on April 21, 2016, and provides a place to connect with local fans and share information about Prince-related local events, parties, and shows.

Reviews
The music is lively, loud, often powerful, sometimes raunchy, yet full of unexpected subtleties and nuances. The staging is frenetic but as perfect as the machines of the art can produce. This is first class music video.
Ted Mahar, Oregonian
Rock star Prince makes an impressive feature film debut in Purple Rain, a rousing contemporary addition to the classic backstage musical genre.
