Whether at home, in a college dorm room, or at a rep cinema, many have experienced Tommy Wiseau’s odd cult classic The Room, but you’ve never seen it like this before. On May 6, select Cineplex theatres across Canada will be screening with the film with LIVE commentary from RiffTrax comedians Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, who also happen to be hosts and writers from the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning Mystery Science Theater 3000.They have produced more than 150 commentaries by riffing on all manner of film, from old cheesy genre films to today’s biggest blockbusters. The Room is so well suited to what they do that is has become a theatrical event that you won’t want to miss.
We’re giving away passes to this event to several lucky Dork Shelf readers. Check this list of participating theatres and if there’s one near you then enter the contest by sending your name and mailing address (winners will receive passes in the mail) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday April 30 at 11:59pm.
