The Crystal Court within The IDS Centre
80 South 8th Street, Minneapolis

Built in 1972 The IDS Centre soars 792 feet into the Minneapolis skyline. The lobby and shopping area at the bottom of the tower is known as The Crystal Court and the skyway level was the location used for the scenes between Prince and Apollonia outside the guitar store.
The area still looks very similar and is open to the public seven days a week.
(Sadly, there are no shops selling white cloud guitars now)
‘The Kid’s’ House (Exterior)

An easy walk from the Minneapolis Blue Line Light Rail stop at 38th Street this was the house used for the exterior of ‘The Kid’s’ troubled family home in Purple Rain. Prince’s NPG Music Publishing purchased the property in 2015.
