The Room

“Oh, hai Mark!”

The Rio Theatre is bringing back our favourite “so bad, it’s good” movie, the pop-culture masterpiece that is everyone’s guiltiest cinematic pleasure, the bestest “best-worst” movie ever, THE ROOM.

What a story! A marvel of modern cinema, Tommy Wiseau‘s THE ROOM is so powerful that it will, literally, “tear you apart.” (Or, maybe just your brain. And occasionally your eyeballs.) 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 Wiseau’s bizarre cinematic oddity that has morphed into a pop-culture phenomenon.
