The 2014 edition of the long-running Off-the-Wall Film Series, co-presented by The Kansas City Public Library and The Pitch, features musically-themed titles from 1984.

Prince’s feature film debut may be a case of ego run rampant – but it’s so much fun you’ve got to love it. Here he plays The Kid, a young Minneapolis musician on the cusp of stardom. Prince discovery Apollonia plays his new squeeze; Morris Day nearly steals the movie as our hero’s musical nemesis; the Revolution’s Wendy and Lisa play up a storm. Directed by Albert Magnoli. This title is Rated R and is recommended for adult audiences only.

These five films, presented on one Friday each month from May through September on the Rooftop Terrace of the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St., offer a tuneful sampling of what Americans were listening to 30 years ago. Featured are such musical artists as Prince and the Talking Heads, an early cinematic celebration of break dancing, and a classic cult film noted for its innovative musical soundtrack.
