Self-explanatory. This is walking distance from my house, so if no one shows up I'm going either way. They serve alcohol if that makes a difference to you. I picked the day with the best weather but I'm fine with Tues or Thurs too.

I walked by and it's $5 admission according to the marquee sign.

I will try and make it, but the time is tough for me. It's the only reason I didn't post this myself! I've never seen Purple Rain, this would be the best way. ;)

Huh. The wife and I missed out on the Labyrinth showing at the Avalon last fall, and I've never seen Purple Rain either. Hrm.

Might be too damn late though. I'll check.

That's my problem- old + "late" means that 9:30 is going to be tough. But I'm going to try anyway. There isn't aren't earlier showings, either.

Mr. August and I may show up, depending on schedule. Neither one of us has seen Purple Rain ever, either and a theater really does seem like the best way to experience it.

Found my sparkly purple sweater, but I'm debating if (black) leather pants is a bridge too far.

Never. Leather pants are never a bridge too far...

My clothes are going to be super boring, but we are planning to be there! Yeah movies with beer!

Well in case there's a lot of people in leather pants, I'll be the shortest one. Given the terrible weather, I'll be waiting inside.

Thanks again for posting this! We had a great time!

Same here. I'm glad we were all able to go, and I wasn't too zonked out this morning.
