Ten years before people knew the wrath of Regina George—leader of the fearsome “Plastics” in Mean Girls—there were Doc Martens, Scrunchies, plaid mini-skirts and, of course, Cheryl Horowitz. Part of 3Below’s series of After School Specials, this 1995 rom-com and coming-of-age tale is based on Jane Austen’s Emma and stars Alicia Silverstone as Cher, the most popular girl in school. Over the course of her hour-and-a-half arc, Cher first rides high before she’s brought low, discovering that the power she wields at Bronson Alcott High School does not extend into the real world. The film runs through Aug. 1. Also in the 3Below series: The Breakfast Club, The Goonies and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
