Riffing on The Room

When: Wed., May 6 and Tue., May 12 2015

You should see this The Room at least once, just so you can say you’ve personally experienced the absolute silt of art’s age-old duck pond. It’s been dubbed by many the worst film in the history of cinema. It not only reorients but transcends the so-bad-it’s-good paradigm. The Room is, at root, a San Francisco love story. Johnny, played by the iconically awful Tommy Wiseau (who also wrote, directed and produced the film, bless him) is deeply in love with Lisa, who’s cheating on Johnny with his best friend Mark. God, this piece of shit is utterly, utterly senseless, and features memorable scenes like this one. Tonight, the funny folks at Mystery Science Theatre have added their "riff tracks" to the movie. It screens at 8 p.m. at area theaters. (Allard) fathomevents.com.
