Prince’s 1984 movie, “Purple Rain,” is coming back to the big screen in the L.A. area and elsewhere for a limited run starting this weekend. The film will screen Saturday through Thursday in select AMC theaters.
The screenings are designed to “pay tribute” to the musician, the theater chain said.
“Purple Rain” will be shown at the AMC Atlantic Times Square 14 in Monterey Park, AMC Broadway 4 in Santa Monica, AMC Covina 17 in Covina, AMC Norwalk 20 in Norwalk, AMC Ontario Mills 30 in Ontario, AMC Orange 30 with IMAX in Orange, AMC Promenade 16 in Woodland Hills and the AMC Rolling Hills 20 in Rolling Hills.
Carmike Theaters also will show the film in about 80 theaters in 28 states during the same period. None of those theaters is in California.
