The music is still glorious, the Revolution still sexy and tight, the font still jagged. The film itself? Somewhat laughable—but wasn’t it back then, as well? Those hoping to go crazy, get nuts, etc., you know what to do. Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Purple Rain with this 35mm-print midnight screening at the Nuart, and prepare to be dazzled once again by everyone's favorite five-foot pop star.
