Gear up with plastic spoons and wits, and join Damen and other Freethinkers in this very special Movie Night Party event.

The Room, is one of the worst movies ever made, and watching it is a unique interactive experience (in The Rocky Horror Picture Show-esque kind of way). What was intended to be a serious work of drama, ended up being a hilarious "Citizen Kane of bad movies".

This is the kind of film that is way more interesting to watch in a group, and what makes the event even more special is that the filmmaker Greg Sestero will be flying in from California for a Q&A following the show.

Recently, Sestero's book "The Disaster Artist" was adapted into an award-winning film by James Franco with the same title.

If you plan to come, make sure to buy your ticket in advance. This is a high demand event, and I suspect the tickets will be gone in few days. It will cost roughly 20 dollars for a ticket.

My seat will be in Row 3 (No 15) if you wanna sit in close proximity and engage with me during the experience.

For food, the cinema includes an extensive menu, and you can eat while watching.

I plan to be there at 7:15, and I'll send my contact information in a private message to the group. Also, we will head out later for drinks and discussion on the film.

In the spirit of this Friday's theme on the "philosophy of work", I'm interested to ask about the curious case of Tommy Wiseau. He is someone who had a dream to work in the movie industry for which he definitely lacked the skill and potential, but he also could be thought of as a "success story" in a way he did not intend. How do you end up choosing what you want to pursue in life, and how much do your knowledge and skills help or hinder your career dreams?

P.s.
I will set a limit for now because I don't know how many tickets will be available by the time you see this, but if you definitely plan to attend and there are movie tickets still available don't wait to be on the RSVP list and you can message me once you get your ticket.
