The Late Show
Because awesome movies are awesome.
Friday nights, 10pm showings of cult classics and deeper-cut genre films.
We're excited to be partnering with the American Genre Film Archive, home to so many forgotten gems of grindhouse cinema, to present AGFA Final Fridays, with one of their films always taking center stage on the last Friday of the month; it's probably gonna get weird, but it's always gonna be a great time.
And don't worry if you can't make it out on Friday night. We occasionally have a Murtaugh Monday screening of most of our Late Show titles because some of us, "are getting too old for this s***!"
"For the faithful, The Room isn’t just bad, it’s intoxicatingly awful." - Nicholas Barber, BBC.com
A cultural phenomenon, Tommy Wiseau's THE ROOM has become a cult classic since its release in 2003. The film itself is hard to describe; the basic synopsis barely does it justice:
Johnny is 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. R / 99 min.
What is so fascinating about THE ROOM is how beguilingly "off" it feels. Dialogue seems almost intentionally unnatural, moments escalate out of nowhere and can settle almost as quickly, and scenes play out in confounding fashion. But in a weird way, it kinda works. Because of this, audiences approach the film with the same fervor as a ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW crowd, complete with callouts and the occasional props. It is a film everyone should experience once.
