It Came from Schenectady presents the ultimate so bad, its good movie...Tommy Wiseau's The Room.
The Room is not a movie. It's a phenomena. As with The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Big Lebowski, in-the-know fans pack screenings armed with comic one-liners and peculiar props.
Whenever a framed photo of a spoon appears on screen, which it frequently does, audience members throw fistfuls of plastic cutlery. They also perform skits and comment loudly on the films many glaring artistic and technical faults.
Tommy Wiseau, the film's writer, director, producer, star and executive producer, has claimed that the unresolved subplots, occasionally fuzzy focus, and his often hysterically bizarre acting are all intentional... that the film was intended as a black comedy. Audiences aren't buying it.
Fans of Rocky Horror and Lebowski believe those are good films, fans of The Room celebrate it as "the Citizen Kane of bad movies".
Either way, it's a non-stop laugh-fest!
As with all ICFS movie events, prizes, surprises, special guests and comfy couches will be part of the party.
