Purple Rain Film about Prince at GFT

Purple Rain

A special screening of the 1984 cult classic.

Sunday 26 June (13.30)


Pay tribute to one of the most important musical icons of all time with this special screening of the 1984 cult classic Purple Rain, which catches a youthful Prince Rogers Nelson at the top of his game. The Kid (Prince) is the arrogant young frontman for The Revolution, who are locked in battle with another band (The Time, fronted by Morris Day) for a regular gig at their local nightclub. Adding to The Kid’s torments are troubles at home and a burgeoning romance with an aspiring singer. A timeless classic with what has to be one of the greatest soundtracks in movie history.

Director Albert Magnoli
