The Fifth Reel Presents: THE ROOM feat. F**kBOY
Fri, 11 Mar 2016, 10:00 PM
The Fifth Reel is kicking off its Spring season the best way it knows how: with the best worst movie of all time: the new cult classic of a generation; the citizen kane of awful movies; Tommy Wiseau's disasterpiece THE ROOM! The last couple of screenings have sold out and we've been getting a huge demand to play this again so we decided to appease the masses!
“The Room is a San Francisco-set love triangle involving a banker named Johnny, his friend Mark, and Johnny’s fiancée Lisa, who is sleeping with both men. The film does seem to be beset with problems. Various subplots are inadequately resolved or simply disappear altogether, including the throwaway revelation that Lisa’s mother is suffering from cancer. - Entertainment Weekly
"While there are plenty of bad movies, there are no movies that are bad in all the ways The Room is bad. It suspends all normal rules of drama. Conflicts are introduced and then disappear instantly. Characters experience rapid mood swings, and everyone speaks in a weird brand of English filled with bizarre idioms. ."
If you've never been to a screening of The Room, familiarize yourself with some of the common callouts and participation cues here.
FYI: We'll have spoons for you to throw at the theatre though it's totally cool if you bring your own (plastic obviously) the more the merrier. Throwing a football with your pal is also cool but please don't throw any in the general direction of the screen.
The preshow tunes to get you in the mood for one of the worst movies of all time, is Calgary's self proclaimed worst band - FUCKBOY. They played last year's event, stole the show, and people have been asking us to bring them back ever since.
Hosting for the evening will be the always hilarious, never a dull moment, THE KINKONAUTS!
Prepare to be dazzled by their hilarious antics and mind bending challenges. Past highlights include human-proton-pack ghost hunting, Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation contests, and life sized rock em sock em robots. One can only guess what they have up their sleeve this time.
As with all Fifth Reel events we will also have beer for sale in the lobby which you'll be able to enjoy in the theatre while you watch the movie! And because people are crazy enough to actually try it each year, we will be serving SKOTCHKA for those brave souls.
$10 for members of The Fifth Reel/Calgary Underground Film Festival/UofC Film Society
$15 for non-members (Free Fifth Reel memberships will be available inside the theatre for those who want to become members for next time)
FIFTH REEL HOUSE RULES:
Audience participation and dressing up is always encouraged. Yelling, cheering, jeering, quote a long. are all also highly encouraged. Past screenings have been as loud and as rowdy as the last house party you've been to. The Fifth Reel is an interactive movie going experience, the audience makes the fun. If you expect to sit on your hands in silence for two hours then this might not be for you...
