THIRTY YEARS OF RAIN
The Purple One has been making a comeback in a major way this year, and to help highlight his legacy, Prince fans can catch a screening of Purple Rain to celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary. Held at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the free event features a screening with a conversation to follow, and afterward, a garden party. The film originally grossed $80 million in box office sales, but seeing it with a crowd of fellow diehard Prince fans makes this event unmissable. For those who need to relive the magic in their own home, Warner Bros. is also releasing a deluxe, remastered version of the Purple Rain soundtrack.
