Clarksville, TN – The unforgettable characters of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel will come to life on our screen this weekend as we Get Back to the Movies at the Roxy Regional Theatre with “The Color Purple” this Friday, April 23rd, 2021 at 7:00pm.
Directed by Steven Spielberg, this epic tale spans four decades in the life of Celie (Whoopi Goldberg), a Black woman living in the South who survives incredible abuse and bigotry.
After Celie’s abusive father marries her off to the equally debasing “Mister” Albert Johnson (Danny Glover), things go from bad to worse, leaving Celie to find strength through her companions Sofia (Oprah Winfrey) and Shug (Margaret Avery).
Rating: PG-13 / Running time: 154 minutes / Release year: 1985 / Director: Steven Spielberg / Cast: Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover, Margaret Avery, Oprah Winfrey, Willard Pugh / Licensing: Swank Motion Pictures
