Cineplex is honouring the late, great musical legend Prince with a special screening of his film Purple Rain.

The screenings will happen across Canada at 54 theatres on the evening of Monday, May 2, and tickets are currently on sale for $6.99. A dollar from the sale of every ticket will go to MusiCounts, a music education charity.


“Bring Purple Rain back to the big screen is a perfect way to honour the life of Prince,” says vice president of Event Cinema for Cineplex Entertainment Brad LaDouceur. “This special screening will allow fans to celebrate the artistry of Prince together as a community.”

Purple Rain was released in 1984 and stars Prince as a musician on the rise who must contend with a rival singer, a burgeoning romance, and his own dissatisfied band.

Here’s a list of participating theatres in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley:

Showtimes are available at participating theatre box offices and websites.
