Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ to Play at AMC Theatres Next Week

The 1984 film will play at 87 AMC locations

Last Updated: April 22, 2016 @ 4:09 PM

After news broke that music icon Prince had passed away at the age of 57 on Thursday, AMC Theatres and Warner Bros. decided that they will bring “Purple Rain” back to the big screen.

AMC will play the iconic 1984 film at 87 AMC locations starting April 23 through April 28. Prince made his feature film debut in the musical drama, which showcased his talents. It made $68 million at the domestic box office.

Prince, the music legend behind hits like “Raspberry Beret,” “Purple Rain,” and “Little Red Corvette,” was found dead on Thursday morning at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota.

While the coroner is working to determine the cause of death, it is known that Prince was briefly hospitalized last Friday in Moline, Illinois, while returning from a concert in Atlanta.

His representatives stated that he was suffering from flu-like symptoms, but a new report indicates that the singer may have overdosed on the painkiller Percocet.

Following news of the Purple One’s death, a flood of tributes emerged on social media, with Katy Perry, Dwayne Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson, Spike Lee and many others sharing their grief.

On Friday, Star Tribune’s LaVelle E. Neal tweeted that the Minnesota Twins will show the film at Target Field Station on Saturday at 8 p.m.
