Immediately after its release in 2003 The Room was rightfully mocked and ridiculed as one of the worst movies since Plan 9 from Outer Space, and cult audiences have loved hating it ever since. In the spirit of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, fans have organized showings to share their love and tear the movie to shreds. It’s never been so much fun to hate a movie.
From the Guardian- “A movie whose transcendent awfulness has made it a cult phenomenon.”
Members of Makers Local 256 are hosting a screening of The Room at Huntsville’s Flying Monkey Arts Center on Friday, December 3rd. The movie starts at 9pm, tickets are $10 at the door of the Monkey’s second floor theater and concessions will be available. There will be audience participation throughout the screening. Bring spoons!
If you’d like to learn more about the audience participation, the Onion’s AV Club has an excellent write-up.
