The Room is more than a bad movie: it’s a bona fide bad movie phenomenon that inspired James Franco’s The Disaster Artist, an acclaimed biopic of director and star Tommy Wiseau. Intended as a dark, penetrating drama, it’s instead a master class in unchecked hubris and unintentionally hilarity. It’s like a PSA about human behavior and emotions made by an alien whose species has never known love. The Room is legendary for its weird dialog, stilted acting and disjointed plot and is celebrated as the most popular midnight movie since The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This is a one-night-only screening of a modern classic you definitely won’t want to miss!
