Cineplex to Screen Prince's 'Purple Rain' Across Canada

Cineplex to Screen Prince's 'Purple Rain' Across Canada
It's been nearly a week since Prince tragically passed away at the age of 57, and the world continues to pay tribute to his legacy. Following news that his backing band the Revolution is reuniting, Canadians will soon get the chance to see Prince's classic film Purple Rain on the big screen.

On May 2, Cineplex will screen Purple Rain in cinemas across Canada. Tickets for the one-night-only event are available now at the cost of $6.99, with one dollar from every ticket sold being donated to the MusiCounts charity.

In a press release, Cineplex's Brad LaDouceur said, "Bringing Purple Rain back to the big screen is a perfect way to honour the life of Prince. This special screening will allow fans to celebrate the artistry of Prince together as a community."
