'Purple Rain' tonight, 'Sign O' the Times' Saturday

class=img_thumbleft>How often do you get to see two great Prince films on the big screen in one week in his hometown? The " psychobiographical " fiction known as Purple Rain screens tonight at 9:00 p.m. at the Regal Brookdale Center 20 theater (6420 Camden Ave N, Mpls., 763.566.3456). The classic and rarely screened concert film Sign O' the Times (here's Michaelangelo Matos's review ) shows Saturday at midnight at the Uptown Theatre (2906 Hennepin Ave S, Mpls., 612.825.6006, official site here ) as part of the Get Real City Pages Documentary Film Festival (Nov. 4-10). The entire Get Real schedule is live here , and in today's City Pages. The fest kicks off Friday at 2:30 p.m. with I.F. Stone's Weekly , a portrait of the independent journalist that couldn't be more timely in this era of media buyouts . Look for more recommendations here tomorrow.
