Celebrate Prince’s Birthday in Grand Rapids this June
Prince fans, this may be your first and/or last chance to see Prince's movie "Sign O the Times" on the big screen.
Lovers of Prince music listen up. Many of us don't have the time or money for a trip to Minneapolis to attend the amazing celebrations that happen each year on Prince's birthday, June 7th. So, how can we get properly get our purple Yoda fix in West Michigan?
The Wealthy Theatre in Grand Rapids will be showing Prince's concert movie "Sign O The Times" on what would have been Prince's 64th birthday, June 7th, 2022. The Sign O The Times album was a favorite of both critics and fans. The 1987 double album contains hits like "U Got The Look," "Hot Thing," "If I Was Your Girlfriend" and the title track "Sign O The Time." The high-energy concert film debuted in Detroit, Michigan in October of 1987 at the American Theatre.
This movie didn't stay in theatres long, which is true for all concert movies. With that being said, many of us hardcore Prince fam never had the chance to see this movie on the big screen. Until now.
