In Memory of Prince, Harkins Theatres Hosts Purple Rain Screenings in Tempe This Weekend

Harkins Theatres announced on the evening of April 21 that its Tempe Marketplace 16 Cine Capri location will pay tribute to the late artist Prince with two screenings of Purple Rain this weekend

It's the second local film tribute announced to honor the Purple One, who died yesterday at his Minnesota home, as Cult Classics also has planned a May screening of Purple Rain at Pollack Tempe Cinemas

“Prince was a true artist and an electrifying performer whose music influenced many generations,” Harkins owner Dan Harkins says in a prepared statement. “Prince’s performance in Purple Rain is one of the most memorable music experiences to hit the big screen, he will be deeply missed.”

The 1984 musical will screen twice at the Tempe theater, which packs a 70-foot screen and more than 40,000 watts of digital sound. Showings are at 7 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, April 23 and 24. Tickets to each event are $5. All proceeds go to City of Hope, an organization that works to support research and treatment of serious diseases including cancer and diabetes.
