Movies on a Big Screen presents The Room - a late night audience participation event!
For over 3 years, "The Room" has been playing monthly to sold-out crowds in Los Angeles. And as it turns out, "The Room" has a bit of a fan base right here in Sacramento! Described by some as a vanity project gone horribly wrong, Tommy Wiseau's "The Room" defies description. Bizarrely written and delivered dialog, subplots that go nowhere, mysterious artwork in the background, and so much more!
What's it all about? Since the official synopsis is far too lengthy, suffice it to say that the core of the plot is a love triangle involving Johnny (Tommy Wiseau), his fiance Lisa (Juliette Danielle), and his best friend Mark (Greg Sestero). Also involved is Denny (Philip Haldiman), the oddly enthusiastic orphan who sees Johnny as a father figure. If you want to know more, you've just got to get out to this screening.
Shot in both 35mm and hi-def digital because, as Tommy Wiseau states, "I was confused about these two formats."
Fans and the uninitiated alike are more than welcome to break out black wigs, sunglasses and ties (just remember to wear that tie askew)! Some plastic spoons will be provided. Roses will not (so you'll have to bring 'em if you want 'em). AND - if you bring a football, PLEASE only bring a nerf-type!!
"You can laugh, you can cry, you can express yourself, but please don't hurt each other." -- Tommy Wiseau
Seating is mostly on folding chairs - feel free to bring a pillow or cushion, or even your own chair! Digital projection on to a large screen.
Movies on a Big Screen presents regular Friday evening film screenings (and occasionally, other nights, too)!
