The Room

A movie experience literally like no other!

'The Room' is widely known as 'the worst film ever made'; a film where the acting, plot, directing, soundtrack and even image quality (focus! unfocus!) is of such poor quality that you want to shout at the film throughout... and the Prince Charles cinema readily encourages you to do so throughout the film.

It doesn't really matter what the film's about- basically the writer/director/actor/egotist who made it stars as a good guy who gets screwed over by everyone and gets ridiculously emotional about it on a cheap soap opera style set. Though he swears it's a 'black comedy' the funniest part of it is that he clearly thought he was making a serious film.

The Room screenings have become a cult at the Prince Charles, happening every month, and there's a list of things the audience should do at various points in the film, from screaming and laughing loudly in reaction to some of the most poorly delivered lines in movie history to throwing plastic spoons at the screen whenever you see a spoon on screen (which, oddly, is often)- they even give you a handful of spoons as you go in. See the video below for what happens during these screenings.

But despite being the worst film ever made, these screens sell out WELL in advance, so please book as soon as possible- it hadn't sold out yet a week before the film but may well have done by the time you're reading this. If you're booking online, the advice is that the best seats are in rows D-F; this is where the optimum amount of plastic spoons land, keeping you replenished throughout the film (I know I often joke about films but this really is the reason to pick these seats!) We'll meet outside the Prince Charles (there isn't much of a meeting area there) from 8.15 for the 8.45 show. After the film, we'll go to the Slug and Lettuce pub round the corner, which will probably be far less entertaining than the film itself.

Hope to see you there!

    It managed to get a review score of 3.3 on IMDB. Is there a movie in the cinema available that has a score lower than that? Ps it still managed to win an award: http://www.imdb.co.uk/title/tt0368226/

      Funnily, I was wondering the same, after seeing the 3.3 rating! Didn't notice the award; will check that out.....

      I think a few will be in D; rows D-F are recommended for spoon replenishment!
