 Aksarben Cinema will allow fans a chance to celebrate the life of Prince by showing the iconic movie “Purple Rain” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, located at 2110 S. 67th St.

Organizers created a specialty cocktail named after the movie and invited local area DJ Shif-Dee to play Prince hits starting at 5:30 p.m.

The theatre has sold out its largest auditorium, but it has added a second one, says Andrea Barstow-Olson, marketing director for Aksarben Cinema.

Tickets are still available, but are going fast, she says.

Fans can either purchase tickets at the Aksarben Cinema box or here.

The showing will also donate a portion of its proceeds to the Nebraska Aids Project.
