Fans are still mourning the loss of Prince, but theaters across the nation want to help us cope by giving us the gift of the iconic Purple Rain.

AMC theaters announced that they will screen the 1984 classic film in 87 of their theaters starting on Saturday and ending on Thursday, Mashable reported. As will Carmike Theaters in 80 theaters, USA Today wrote.

Purple Rain, directed by Albert Magnoli, stars Prince as “The Kid,” who is an aspiring musician in Minneapolis coping with his family trouble, finding and maintaing love and clashing with his bandmates and competition. This semi-autobiographical film grossed $80 million worldwide, won an Academy Award for Best Song and its soundtrack sold more than 25 million copies.

It is truly a classic–and people definitely want to “get crazy!”
