Nomad Cinema Presents: Purple Rain
Join the wandering band of movie mavericks for a special film screening
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to celebrate the late, great, Prince. Festival Gardens, St Paul's Cathedral will become your suitably decadent host as you take a look back at an '80s musical classic. The Purple one stars here as The Kid, a budding rockstar who's trying to make it in the music industry whilst dealing with family problems and new love. As much a dedication to the music as the man behind it, all we want to do is see you watching Purple Rain… "Rock star Prince makes an impressive feature film debut in Purple Rain, a rousing contemporary addition to the classic backstage musical genre." – Variety "A hokey but mesmerising rock-video psychodrama." – Entertainment Weekly Certificate: 15. Running time: 1 hour 47 minutes. Fully accessible. Food and drink available to purchase. Picnics with alcohol permitted. No glassware. Doors open: 7:15pm.
"…rides the underlying currents of its moment and renders them glorious."
