The inaugural film of our new Cinema Jukebox program is both a Grammy winner and Academy Award winner for Best Original Score. It features hits such as "When Doves Cry", "Let's Go Crazy" and the title song, "Purple Rain". All of these songs are written and performed by Prince and the Revolution. 

This is reason enough for it to lead this series, but the fact that the film also stars Prince makes Purple Rain a big screen event you simply cannot miss. The artist plays a talented musician struggling for success while his rival (Morris Day) threatens to supplant him both romantically and professionally.
