Can you believe it’s the 10th anniversary of The Room
– ‘the Citizen Kane
of bad movies’? Come and mark this important occasion by hurling lines of dialogue and plastic spoons around Cinema 1. If you need a reminder, this is the plot: Johnny (the legendary Tommy Wiseau, who also wrote, directed and produced) is a successful banker with the promise of a big promotion. His future wife, Lisa, has doubts and decides to make things interesting by sleeping with his best friend, Mark. This simple premise, however, is expanded into an epic melodramatic train wreck of a film with gaping plot-holes, hammy acting and a monumentally terrible script.
The Room is screening as part of our 'So bad it's good' strand of films, which also includes (Fri 10 May, 23.00) and double bill (Sun 12 May, 14.15).
