If you're worried you missed out on dancing and partying like Prince would have on Thursday evening, we're here to assure you that the fêtes were just getting started. Even if you missed the Prince tribute at the Apollo or the block party Spike Lee threw in Fort Greene, there are still quite a few more chances to spread your dove wings and party like the Purple One.
See below for your chances to get in on the action.
Purple Rain Screens at AMC Theaters
AMC theaters across the country are showing Purple Rain this weekend at select locations. You owe it to yourself to see the 1984 classic, loosely based on Prince's life, on the big-screen. That puffy shirt was meant to be viewed from plush, stadium seating. Participating theaters are listed here.

Dearly Beloved: A Prince Remembrance and Listening Party
Celebrate Prince before your seder starts (or maybe stop by right after). At Meridian 23, bartender Kim Hayes will even be serving a special purple beverage honoring Prince at the free event.
Party Like It's 1999
Not only is this a 90s party, but one that's named after a Prince song. For $6, you can dance to your Prince favorites, deep cuts and artists he's inspired. Plus, Littlefield will be projecting Prince's performances, music videos and films on the walls.

The Living Room at the W Hotel in Times Square will host an evening of dancing to Prince's greatest hits from 9.p.m. to midnight. While you're sexing it up on the dance floor, be sure to grab one of the craftily named cocktails. We hear the Purple Rain, EXtra Touch and 1999 are great.
