Prince's 'Purple Rain' Returning To Select AMC Theatres And Carmike Cinemas Locations

Fans around the world are still reeling from the sudden passing of international music icon Prince. The 57 year old musician was found dead in his Minnesota studio on Thursday, and plenty of tributes and memories have been hitting the web in honor of the incredible musician. Now several networks and a couple movie theater are chains are helping people mourn and celebrate Prince.

Prince's feature film Purple Rain will be returning to select theaters in the AMC Theatres and Carmike Cinemas chains while NBC, VH1, OWN, AXS TV will be airing special tributes as well. Get all the details on where you can see Purple Rain in theaters and catch other Prince tributes after the jump.

First up, NBC will be airing a special retrospective episode of Saturday Night Live titled "SNL Goodnight Sweet Prince." The tribute will be a clip show comprised of memorable performances from his SNL appearances in 1981, 2006 and 2014. His final appearance on the show included an eight-minute jam session in the middle of the episode rather than the traditional two separate performances. It's truly incredible. Off the top of my head, I can't remember if he appeared in any sketches, but if he did, hopefully they'll play those as well. That episode will air at 11:30pm ET/PT.

Next, Oprah Winfrey's network OWN will be re-airing an interview with Prince from the talk show personality's own program back in 1996. That will air Saturday night at 8pm ET.

Also on Saturday, AXS TV will have a whole tribute block of programming that will include an episode of Rock Legends focusing on Prince at 1pm ET along with the TV premiere of a special documentary called Slave Trade: How Prince Re-Made The Music Business.

In addition, this Tuesday, Fox will re-air an episode of New Girl which featured Prince appearing as himself. The episode aired in 2014 and will be replayed on Fox on Tuesday, April 26 at 9:30pm ET/8:30pm ET.

Finally, VH1 will be playing Purple Rain throughout the weekend. The network will play the 1984 film twice a day throughout the weekend, so check out local listings to see when it's on TV.

Speaking of Purple Rain, if you'd rather catch it in theaters, AMC Theatres and Carmike Cinemas locations will be playing the film on the big screen starting today and running through Thursday, April 27. This feels a tad exploitative to me, but surely there are plenty of fans who would like to see the movie on the big screen again, especially since it's not one of those movies that has been redistributed in theaters abundantly since its release.

Here's the entire list of theaters where you can catch Purple Rain, thanks to Variety.
