On February 6th at midnight, a mere seven days before Casablanca, the Cedar Lee theater will be showing The Room, one of the best bad movies you‘ll ever see. This multi-million dollar production comes to us from the strangely beefy auteur Tommy Wiseau and has threatened in overtake The Rocky Horror Picture Show as the midnight movie of choice for discerning moviegoers in many cities. The Room concerns the trials and tribulations of Johnny (played by Wiseau), a banker who cannot wait to marry the love of his life, Lisa. But Lisa is two timing on him with his best friend, and her mother has cancer and their nearly adopted son is hooked on drugs, and the bank where Johnny works doesn’t like his ideas and… whew!
Trying to define The Room is like trying to cage a wild animal, it’s dangerous and shouldn’t be attempted by the weak. Just bring some plastic spoons to the show and join in on what has become a great audience participation event. Bring your significant other with you and drink from the somewhat rotten smelling well of knowledge that is contained in this hysterically inept, but wonderful little gem.
