Oh, Hi Sydney!
The cult phenomenon The Room returns to The Orpheum (an exclusive monthly event for over three years now!) and as always will be an audience interactive screening – so grab your plastic spoon at the door!
Bring your friends, have a drink at the Orpheum bar (you’ll probably need two) and enjoy what has been referred to as “The Citizen Kane of Bad Movies”.
The Room is a 2003 American independent romantic drama film starring Tommy Wiseau, who also wrote, directed, and produced the feature.
Originally only shown in a limited number of California theatres, the film quickly developed a cult following as fans found humour in the film’s bizarre storytelling and various technical and narrative flaws.
Within a decade of its premiere, the film was selling out showings around the United States and had inspired a video game, book, and traveling stage show.
Tommy Wiseau unsuccessfully lobbied to get the film an Academy Award nomination and “fans” on his website are able to sign a petition to get Tommy a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“The Citizen Kane of Bad Movies” – Entertainment Weekly
“A movie so bad, so inept, so unbelievably painful, it’s almost impossible to comprehend anyone thought it would be great on-screen” – Cinema Crazed
“If you experience brain damage as a result of watching this film, I disavow any responsibility whatsoever” – Playback
“And that’s the conundrum of “The Room. It’s so very bad that it becomes riveting” – KPBS.org
“PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE gave me nowhere near as many belly laughs” LYTrules.com
“A bona fide classic of midnight cinema, Tommy Wiseau’s misguided masterpiece subverts the rules of filmmaking with a boundless enthusiasm that renders such mundanities as acting, screenwriting, and cinematography utterly irrelevant. You will never see a football the same way again” – Rotten Tomatoes
