    A special screening of Prince’s 1984 film debut, Purple Rain, is coming to The Wiltern on Thursday, April 25th! With some of the beginning scenes of the film shot at The Wiltern, there’s no better place to dive into the story of Prince as “The Kid” and celebrate a true Rock legend.

    The party continues after the screening with a dance party, featuring a DJ spinning Prince’s greatest hits on vinyl! And if that’s not enough Prince for you, we’ll have Prince-themed cocktails available at the bar! There will be plenty of themed photo ops, so practice your poses.

    Dress up in that killer purple jacket, costumes are highly encouraged!

    Rock on Film: A Salute to the singers, writers and musicians who have created the poetry of our time at The Wiltern.
    In 1987, the legendary rock concert promoter Bill Graham presented an 18-day “Rock on Film” festival at The Wiltern. The American Cinematheque’s 44-film salute to the great rock musicians of our time illustrates the development and influence of this once maligned style of film music.

    In 2019, The Wiltern is bringing Graham’s legacy and Rock on Film back to where it all started.

    All Ages.  Concessions and a full bar (21+) will be available.
