A Midnight Movie Event!


The Room
Rated R • Length 99 min • Year 2003

Experience the cult phenomenon on the big screen! THE ROOM, which inspired James Franco’s award-winning adaptation THE DISASTER ARTIST, follows Johnny – a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored with him and decides to seduce his best friend, Mark. From there, nothing will be the same again.

An intense, sensual thriller, The Room is an intricately knit web of sweet secrets and bitter lies that interrogates the very form of drama itself as well as a truly unforgettable piece of cinema.
