“Purple Rain” (1984) at the Cerrito, Thursday, September 8, at 9:30 p.m.

Time to revisit Prince’s stunning movie debut at the Cerrito on Thursday, September 8, at 9:30!

The world lost one of its brightest stars with the untimely passing of Prince this spring. Go back in time and experience his greatness once again. “Purple Rain” is loosely autobiographical. In it, the Kid (Prince) is on the rise with his band, The Revolution. He is trying to escape his tumultuous family life, navigate the club scene, and pursue a rocky relationship with the captivating singer, Apollonia.

And Prince’s music is at the heart of the movie! As the blog The Movie Sleuth states, the movie shows Prince at the top of his form; he had “blurred the lines between his own sexually charged funk, guitar rock, dance music, and the electronic instruments that were about to take the musical world by storm.”

“Purple Rain” plays once only on Thursday, September 8, at 9:30 p.m. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.

“Stop Making Sense” (1984) at the Cerrito, Thursday, August 11, at 9:30 p.m.

Have the ultimate concert experience at the Cerrito on Thursday, August 11, at 9:30!

The pleasure of “Stop Making Sense” is in watching a band, The Talking Heads, led by David Byrne, perform at the top of its game. You could say the same thing about the director of the movie, Jonathan Demme, now known for such movies as “Married to the Mob,” “Philadelphia,” and “Silence of the Lambs.”

In “Stop Making Sense,” Demme created the ultimate classic concert film, when filming the “Talking Heads” performance at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. Unlike earlier concert films, it’s all about the music and the players, not the faces in the crowd or what’s going on backstage. What you get is pure energy, bursting from the screen.

“Stop Making Sense” plays once only on Thursday, August 11, at 9:30 p.m. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly urged to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.

And now for something completely different at the Cerrito on Thursday, July 14, at 9:30!

Who else but the Monty Pythons could turn the quest for the Holy Grail into inspired lunacy? One critic said the movie contains more laughs per minute than any other movie he’s ever seen.

We’re in the land of medieval England, but there’s no Robin Hood around. Instead we have King Arthur, played by Graham Chapman and his eccentric fellow-Python Knights: John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam—playing multiple hilarious roles.

The off-the-wall epic send-up shot in the rugged Scottish Highlands shows the makeshift band encountering a three-headed knight, a killer bunny, and countless other amazements. Filled with thrills, spills, and especially, laughs.

“Monty Python and the Holy Grail” plays once only on Thursday, July 14, at 9:30 p.m. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly urged to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.
