Midnight Screening of "The Room"

For those of you that haven't heard of The Room, it's a cult film that gained notoriety over the past few years for how bad it is, but so bad it's good. It's been called the "Citizen Kane" of bad movies. So why should you spend a Saturday night watching a train wreck of a movie? Because it's so much fun to watch it with a theater full of rowdy people who appreciate how epically bad it is. In the vein of Rocky Horror, there is audience interaction with the film where certain scenes prompt certain rituals (read more in the article below).

Tickets are $16. This screening features an in-person appearance by the director of this masterpiece, Tommy Wiseau. The screening is in Westwood, so it'll be a longer trek for Eastsiders, but I promise it'll change your life. Ok, not really, but you can check participating in this L.A. institution off your bucket list. For those who are interested, we can meet up beforehand for a drink or two.

    Have fun tonight, everyone! I unfortunately got the dates mixed up and went to last night's screening instead, so I'll have to you all at another event. Bring plenty of spoons and footballs!

    Hi everyone...I've been informed that the line for the screening yesterday was long at 11:30 p.m. So for those that are interested, I'm pushing the meeting for drinks earlier, at 10:45 p.m. I'm also changing the location to Barney's Beanery, right next door to the Regent Theater. Sorry for the last minute changes. If you have trouble finding us, give me a call or text at the number I emailed to you. See you all tonight!

    Hey, since the theatre is a trek, would folks want to carpool over? We are coming from the same area after all...
