The Room

When: Sat., March 3, 11:45 p.m. 2018

Since it first appeared on a single Los Angeles screen in 2003, Tommy Wiseau’s bizarro romantic drama The Room has developed a reputation as one of the strangest, most unintentionally hilarious pieces of cinema ever made. It recently made its way onto the A-list: James Franco’s The Disaster Artist, a comic look at The Room’s behind-the-scenes antics, just received an Oscar nomination for its script. Now you can see Wiseau’s original “masterpiece” for yourself, and just as the bad movie gods intended: at a midnight screening with a boisterous audience at the Garland Theater. Like The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Room has become an interactive filmgoing experience. Be sure to bring your best friend, an ill-fitting tuxedo, a football (for throwing) and a handful of plastic spoons (also for throwing). The film isn’t often screened outside big cities, so getting your tickets now would be good thinking.
