“Oh, hai Mark!”
The Rio Theatre‘s Friday Late Night Movie series continues on April 8 with Tommy Wiseau‘s epic, pop-culture masterpiece, THE ROOM. This legendary stinker is easily the Rio Theatre audiences’ all-time, hands-down forever favourite “so bad, it’s good” movie. Among our collective guiltiest cinematic pleasure, it may just be the bestest “best-worst” film of all time! Even better? Greg Sistero (aka “Mark”) will be on hand to intro the film.
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.
