20 YEARS OF GIRL POWER: SPICE WORLD vs. THE CRAFT
$10 double feature deal / $8 each
SPICE WORLD ~ “Is there a problem, officer?”
“20 Years Later, Spice World Is … Weirdly Relevant” - Vulture. Upon reflection, the once critically-panned endeavor by 90s pop icons, the Spice Girls, has become a meta and ridiculous joyful self-aware romp. There’s the fashion. There are cameos you didn’t spot. Puns that may not have fully registered in your early teens. And a central theme that is actually even more relevant today.
THE CRAFT ~ “We are the weirdos, mister.”
It was the film which first introduced audiences to Neve Campbell, paved the way for everything from Charmed to Witches of East End, and made every gothic teenager want to join a coven. It also finally validated everyone who only ever wanted to wear all-black on the beach. Some of the reasons why we love THE CRAFT so much was how UN-fake it was: the cast used proper spells, one of the stars became an actual witch, the snakes were real, and rumor has it the film itself is possibly haunted.
And so it begins… at Catholic school, a new girl falls in with a clique of teen witches who wield their powers against anyone who crosses them, even their parents. 1996 R 1h 41m, US, Andrew Fleming
