"Johnny is a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored with him and decides to seduce his best friend, Mark. From there, nothing will be the same again." IMDB.com
The Room is a 2003 movie written, produced, and directed by Wiseau, who also stars as its main character, Johnny. It was originally envisioned as a stage play, then turned into a 500-page novel, and ultimately finalized as a movie script. Since its cult success, Wiseau has tried to pass his film off as a “black comedy” rather than an inept melodrama that’s unintentionally funny, but he’s not fooling anyone. (Vox.com).
Come see it on the big screen with us Tuesday, September 11th!
Funny Girls teams up with Wealthy Theatre for the 11pm showing of The Room, with a live commentary screening (ala Mystery Science Theatre).
