Prince 'Purple Rain' screening and party

When: Fri., April 26, 8 p.m. 2019

It's hard to believe the world has gone three years without the artist formerly known as Prince. But on Friday, Detroit's Old Redford is throwing a Prince-themed bash to help get us through this thing called life. At 8 p.m., the Redford Theatre will screen Prince's 1984 classic Purple Rain. Tickets are $7 and guests are encouraged to dress as Prince. Why? Next door, Artist Village Detroit will host an afterglow with an audience-judged costume contest at midnight. There will also be a live band playing Prince songs, a DJ, and a barbecue in the courtyard. Tickets are $5 with a ticket stub from the Redford Theatre, or $10 without. Proceeds go to Artist Village Detroit.
