Tommy Wiseau's The Room Friday Night at the Music Box

A tremendously important addendum to my weekly preview of film screenings in Chicago: At midnight this Friday, September 17, the Music Box Theatre will show Tommy Wiseau's cult masterpiece The Room (2003).

It has been called the worst film ever made. It has been called the greatest cult film of all time. One reviewer, after seeing the film three times, remarked, "I no longer know where The Room ends and I begin."

Is it a soap opera? Is it a melodrama? Is it a comedy? Is it a dark comedy? Is it the story of one teen's battle against addiction?

Unfortunately, Tommy Wiseau will not be present at the screening. But that doesn't mean you can't toss around the pigskin without him.

Visit the official site of The Room here.
