Cedar Lee Will Screen "Purple Rain" Thursday, April 28, to Honor Prince


[image-1]In the wake of Prince's untimely death, the Cedar Lee will screen the 1984 film Purple Rain next Thursday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the screening will be $6. 

“We’ve shown Purple Rain a few times over the years as part of the Melt Bar & Grilled Late Shift Series,” said David Huffman, Cleveland Cinemas Director of Marketing, in a press release. “It’s a film that captured Prince at the height of his career and I can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to this legendary performer than to bring it back to the big screen.”

Huffman said that all guests are encouraged to wear purple.

Prince, a 2004 Rock Hall inductee, was found dead Thursday morning at his recording studio complex southwest of Minneapolis. He was 57 years old.
