Staff Report From Columbus CEO

Monday, April 25th, 2016

Carmike Cinemas, Inc.has scheduled special, limited screenings of Prince's Oscar and Grammy award-winning Purple Rain (1984) starting tomorrow, Saturday, April 23through Thursday, April 28. The film will be presented on the big screen, as it was meant to be seen, for fans to gather, remember and experience as a community this once-in-a-lifetime artist. 

As Greg Kilday of Billboard says, Prince "burst onto the scene with his very first film, 1984's quasi-autobiographical Purple Rain." 

At the time of film's release, Entertainment Weekly's Owen Gleibermanwrote, "Prince magnetizes the camera with The Stare — a rivetingly narcissistic, come-hither gaze that's equal parts genetics, attitude, and eyeliner."

Purple Rain will be presented in approximately 80 theaters across 24 states. A list of locations is below.  Showtimes can be found at Carmike is finalizing showtimes and continues to add theatres, so fans are encouraged to check the link periodically for availability in their area.
