The Room

Join Cinema Nova for a special, interactive Comedy Festival screening of The Citizen Kane of bad movies".

The Room is like no other film you’ve ever seen. Most filmmakers dread bad reviews, but they’ve worked wonders for the enigmatic Tommy Wiseau. His misguided masterpiece, a torrid romantic melodrama about a love triangle gone awry, breaks all the rules of filmmaking but is a bona fide cult classic.

Since its disastrous debut in 2013, The Room now plays sold out shows every week around the word. Beloved by comedians and comic actors such as Kristen Bell and Alec Baldwin, The Room has garnered a massive cult following the word over, leaving audiences stunned and wondering “how can so bad, be so good?”

Along the way, Tommy Wiseau has come to embrace his role as the mysterious nobody who blundered his way into Hollywood infamy by pursuing his big dream no matter what the cost.

The Room is an audience interactive event complete with a Room Guide, loud cheering, quoting along lines, yelling at the screen and throwing LOTS of (eco friendly) spoons at the screen.. likely the most outrageous cinema experience you will ever have.
