Pittsburgh PA: Purple Rain – A Birthday Party for the Purple One

Let’s go crazy in honor of the artist formerly known as Prince! Party like it’s 1999 on what would have been the Purple One’s 61st birthday at The Rangos Giant Cinema with purple cake, party favors, and, of course, a showing of Purple Rain on Pittsburgh’s largest screen.

Singer, songwriter, fashion icon, and guitar virtuoso, Prince revolutionized music with his indelible and flamboyant style. In Purple Rain, his electrifying talents are brilliantly captured through Prince’s quasi-biographical character, the Kid.

The Kid is a Minneapolis musician on the rise with his band, The Revolution, struggling to escape a tumultuous home life through music. While trying to avoid making the same mistakes as his truculent father (Clarence Williams III), the Kid navigates the club scene and a rocky relationship with a captivating singer, Apollonia (Apollonia Kotero). But another musician, Morris (Morris Day), looks to steal the Kid’s spotlight — and his girl.

Soundtrack favorites like, “Take Me With U,” “The Beautiful Ones,” and “Baby I’m a Star,” will sound more powerful than ever through our 45 top-notch speakers. Plus, Prince on a GIANT screen? If any artist’s performance is worthy of Pittsburgh’s largest screen, it’s him.

Please note: Cake and party favors available while quantities last.


“”Love the (2018) end of year review. Excellent concept to share and involve the community in the growth of the channel. Your work is so inspiring and informative. I enjoy learning your perspective of his music. I love to study song lyrics, research when he wrote and recorded the songs in parallel with what was going on in his life at the time that would influence the music. All ways we can get to know him better… 💜💜💜💜. May we live 2 C the dawn!!!”

“Prince’s Friend, I am a new subscriber. I found your channel when I came across the video you did about Dez Dickerson which was so fascinating. Me and a friend recently traveled to the Twin Cities where we took a tour of Paisley Park. What an amazing and emotional experience that was. Anyways, I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know how much I enjoy your content. You are a fascinating man.”  Nathanial  January  2019

“I think this is my favorite video you have created concerning Prince. It is apparent that you dug deep and gave this topic a great deal of thought. You highlighted concepts and traits of Prince that are quite thought-provoking and through his music, his lyrics, his moral stances…..he teaches. Unorthodox in many ways, but so impactful…. thank you PF for this enlightening video! I throughly enjoyed it ”
