If you're anything like us, you went home on Thursday night, opened up your Netflix, and watched Purple Rain/sang along/mourned the loss of such an icon. And now we get to do it all over again in *public*, because movie theater chain AMC has just announced that it will be hosting Purple Rain screenings nationwide in honor of Prince. 🙏

The screenings of the 1984 film—which earned Prince an Oscar for Best Original Score and gave us "When Doves Cry"—started Saturday, and will run throughout the week. (That's right, you better hurry.) You can find if your theater is hosting a tribute here

In the meantime, we'll be playing this trailer on repeat.
