Elements Rising #3 – VIRGO

Session Times



Midnight margaritas, anyone? Revisit a charm-filled ‘90s treasure filled to the brim with hexes, bygone fashion trends and Stevie Nicks music cues. Sally (Sandra Bullock) and Gillian Owens (Nicole Kidman) were born into a magical family but have largely avoided witchcraft themselves. Instead they run a well-kept apothecary shop and party wildly until dawn, respectively. But when Gillian's brute of a boyfriend Jimmy Angelov (Goran Visnjic) dies unexpectedly, the sisters are forced to take a crash course in serious magic from their practically perfect aunts (Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest). With suspicious detective Gary Hallet (Aidan Quinn) on their tail, the women decide to resurrect Angelov – inadvertently imbuing his corpse with an evil spirit that has destruction on its mind.

Presented by Elements Rising – #3. VIRGO

Elements Rising is a new series curated by Matt Lennon (Libra Sun / Scorpio Rising) and Kate Jinx (Leo Sun / Gemini Rising) that explores the cinematic side of the Zodiac. Each of the twelve signs will be the focus of a monthly special screening with starry surprises.
