Purple Rain: 35th Anniversary
Cremorne’s Art Deco cinema, the Orpheum, is screening classic 1984 rock musical Purple Rain to celebrate the film’s 35th anniversary.
Prolific, eclectic musician Prince makes his big-screen debut in the film, which was developed to showcase his particular talents. Prince plays the quasi-biographical lead “The Kid” and the film contains several extravagant concert sequences.
The film became a cult classic and received an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score.
