A modest hit on its first release, The Craft has grown an impressive cult following. A group of outcast teenage girls start studying magic to gain power over the very relatable problems that young women often face in high school (gaslighting, bullying, racism, body issues, and sexual assault to name a few). The Craft has become a defining movie of female empowerment, survival in the modern world, and mid-90s fashion. Starring Fairuza Balk, Robin Tunney, Neve Campbell, Rachel True, and Skeet Ulrich. (105 mins., 35mm)
All Wex Drive-In movies start at dusk (generally around 9 PM). Pack up a few blankets or lawn chairs, and join us at 7:30 PM for food and fun before the show. Enjoy outdoor games, a DJ and film trivia (8–9 PM), and very Crafty tarot card readings, plus local vendors including The Cheesy Truck, Hai Poké, Seventh Son, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, and Heirloom Café (preorder menu only; order by phone at 614.688.3070 by 4 PM Aug 16). Members, visit the Wex membership table for your free scoop of Jeni’s and other perks. In case of rain or extreme heat, films screen indoors.
The Wex has partnered with regional artists to create screenprinted T-shirts for our outdoor summer film series. Pick up the shirt for The Craft—designed by Deerjerk, a.k.a. Bryn Perrott of Morgantown, West Virginia—on-site at the Wexner Center Store and on the plaza or online at store.wexarts.org. (Shirts are $20 for Wex members and $25 for the general public).
