#SavetheRio Fundraiser: The Room

A marvel of modern cinema, THE ROOM is so powerful that it will, literally, “tear you apart.” (Or, maybe just your brain. And occasionally your eyeballs.) I mean, in the pantheon of you-gotta-see-it-to-believe-it best-worst movies, it’s quite possible that nothing tops THE ROOM. It’s the CITIZEN KANE of bad movies!

And truly, truly, the best (trust!) way to experience this “masterpiece” is in the dark, on the big screen, and with a packed audience  of confused (and enthused!) lovers of director Tommy Wiseau‘s bizarre cinematic oddity that has morphed into a pop-culture phenomenon. Also: #spoons. Audience costumes welcome and encouraged!!!

Live Script Reading & Screening of THE ROOM with Greg Sestero!

On May 27th, Rio Theatre is tackling something weirdly special for the 13 year anniversary of THE ROOM! A full-length live script reading of actor/director/producer/screenwriter Tommy Wiseau’s very first draft of THE ROOM, with dialogue and plot events that’re very different from the polished version that wound up on-screen.
