Celebrate the creative genius, electric energy, witty humour, compassionate spirit & the unforgettable music of Prince - The man whose purple imprint is forever engrained into our hearts, bodies, minds, spirits and lives!
In conjunction with the upcoming October 13th Prince Tribute at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, some Prince fams and I thought it would be special if we could come together in a more relaxed environment and remember Prince for his contributions to film as well as to music, thus the idea for a movie night was born (two actually, don't forget about Purple Rain/Graffiti Bridge on Friday Oct 14th). To do this right, I felt it was only fitting to hold a fundraiser so we could collectively support a charity that Prince contributed to. We are honouring Prince with a double feature movie night with all proceeds going toward a cause that Prince generously supported, and collectively this Purple Family can too!
What: This double feature includes Under the Cherry Moon followed by Sign Of The Times! If you haven't experienced these on the big screen, don't miss this opportunity to do so while being surrounded by fellow Prince FAMS aka Orgers aka Purple Army aka Prince Army! This special event is co-sponsored by the Org. Prince.Org that is! Come check us out if you haven't already!
When: October 12th - doors at 7pm. Under The Cherry Moon at 7:30pm, followed by an intermission, Sign of the Times begins at 9:30pm.
Where: St Anthony Main Theatre, 115 Southeast Main Street - 8 minute drive/25 min walk from U.S. Bank Stadium. Attendees can arrange cab-shares back if needed.
Tickets are a reasonable $10 which includes both movies! Tickets are limited, subject to availability and are first come first snag. This is a zero-profit event! The cost of the tickets is directly related to the theatre rental and film licensing. All proceeds from this Double Feature will be donated to a very worthy cause (Please stand by, a new cause is being selected due to unexpected...turbulance, this should be updated shortly).
A donation is not required to attend the event but if you can even spare a dollar, everything counts and 100% goes to this important cause. ***You can also make a donation even if you are not attending, to join ths collective donation for Prince! Donations will also be collected at the event so pocket change is completely acceptable too! #ChangeForAChange.
**Tickets for a single movie will be made available in the event the double-feature tickets do not sell out. However, if you don't want to miss out, secure your double feature ticket and attend the movie of your choice/or the one that works with your schedule. If this is what you'd prefer, please drop me a message after your purchase to inform me so I can donate the portion of the film you are not attending to the cause, and make the 2nd ticket available.
We are holding raffles and 50/50 draws for a handful of fun Princely-related items as well! If you have an item you'd like to contribute to the raffle, please reach out to me. All funds raised from the raffles/draws will also go directly to the newly selected cause.
***A second Prince Double Feature Fundraiser is happening on October 14th featuring Purple Rain & Graffiti Bridge, don't miss it!
***IF THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT AND YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED, add your name to the waitlist, if we have enough interest, I will reach out to the theatre about a second screen.
Can't wait to see U there!
