Friday Night Freakout: THE ROOM
January 13
9 p.m. meet & greet | 10 p.m. screening

A bona-fide cult classic, Tommy Wiseau’s misguided masterpiece subverts the rules of filmmaking with a boundless enthusiasm that renders such mundanities as acting, screenwriting, and cinematography utterly irrelevant. Johnny (Wiseau) is a successful banker who lives a quiet life in San Francisco with his fiancée Lisa. The happy-go-lucky guy sees his world being torn apart when his friends begin to betray him one-by-one. You may never look at a football the same again. Drama/Romance, 2003, 91 min., R.

Featuring a meet & greet and Q&A with special guest Greg Sestero, star of The Room and author of The Disaster Artist. The screening will be held in Theater 1, RFC’s 124-seat capacity theater. The bar in Abby Singer’s Bistro will be open until 9:30 p.m. with a themed cocktail special.
