Join us at The Packing House for "Purple Rain". Purple Rain (1984) American rock musical drama film directed by Albert Magnoli, produced by Robert Cavallo, Joseph Ruffalo, and Steven Fargnoli, and written by Magnoli and William Blinn.

The film stars Prince in his acting debut about “a young musician, tormented by an abusive situation at home, must contend with a rival singer, a burgeoning romance, and his own dissatisfied band, as his star begins to rise.” (IMDB). The film received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song Score (TV Guide).

SPIN’s ‘Prince: The Oral History of ‘Purple Rain: A look back at the making of Prince's 1984 masterpiece’ states, “Purple Rain is remembered for its music — the soundtrack album produced four Top 40 hits and is a beloved pop masterpiece — but the movie, released on July 27, 1984, remains the nerviest act of Prince’s quixotic career.”

Gene and Roger Review "Purple Rain" in Best Movies Of 1984 Show.

This film showing is supported by the Friends of The Mill Works. The total run time is 1-hour, 51 minutes.  Suggested donation $5.00. Snacks and soft drinks available. "BYOB" - Beer and Wine ONLY.
