The Room Screening featuring Tommy Wiseau - April 25, 2014


On Friday night I had the opportunity to go to my first screening of Tommy Wiseau's 2003 film, The Room.  If you have never heard of this movie, then you are seriously missing out on one of the best worst films ever made.  Below you will find Cinema Sins video on the film:
The movie is actually quite enjoyable because of the absurdity of it.  The film has gained notoriety for being one of the worst films ever made.

Prior to the screening of the film Tommy Wiseau himself made an appearance for a meet and greet and Q+A.  Fans were able to purchase everything from Johnny bobbleheads and DVDs to T-Shirts and even Tommy Wiseau underwear!  Wiseau signed anything and posed with fans. 

Some fans, including my friends and I decided to dress up for the occasion.  Tommy Wiseau himself loved the costumes so much that he decided to pull my group up in the front of the audience during the Q+A.  I decided to ask him who his favorite Superhero is and he responded Superman... so now we know.
The screening itself was unforgettable.  The crowd jeered every second of the film yelling things at the screen.  There is also a tradition during the screening to throw plastic spoons whenever a picture of spoons is seen during the film, which happens a lot.  When I say there were around 3000 spoons thrown, I mean it!  I was hit many times with spoons and was more than happy to throw my share. 

The film is shown one weekend a month at the Ritz at the Bourse.  If you are looking for a good time, be sure to attend the next screening of the film.

For more information about the film be sure to check out  The next screening in Philadelphia will be May 9 at the Ritz at the Bourse... be sure to bring your own spoons!
