The Room

“Oh, hai Mark!”

Yes, really! The Rio Theatre is beyond excited to welcome back the pop-culture masterpiece that is everyone’s all-time, hands-down favourite “best-worst” movie ever: THE ROOM.

(Fun fact: It was at the Rio, in 2014, that James Franco first saw THE ROOM – and later that night, made plans to adapt actor and author Greg Sestero’s memoir ‘The Disaster Artist’ into a feature! What a story!!!)

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.) 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!!
