THE ROOM – Weekly Double Pass Giveaway!
Double Pass Giveaway to the crazy cult classic movie – THE ROOM
See below for details
||From January 14th – February 4th, Tribal Theatre will present four special Friday late-night screenings of the 2003 cult film The Room.
Dubbed ‘the Citizen Kane of bad movies’, Tommy Wiseau’s so-bad-it’s-good film will be screened on 35mm in all its glory.
A piece of cinema so awful it has become a cult phenomenon and an outrageous movie-going experience.
Audiences around the world have embraced Wiseau’s film, dressing up as their favorite characters, throwing plastic spoons at the screen, tossing footballs to each other, and yelling insulting comments about the film’s terrible quality.
The Room is a truly unforgettable film with glaring plot holes, strange editing and a bizarre lead performance from Tommy Wiseau himself.
Set in San Francisco, The Room is a melodramatic but unintentionally hilarious tale of a love triangle involving Johnny, his friend Mark, and Johnny’s fiancée Lisa – who is sleeping with both men…
The Room drew packed audiences when screened recently as part of Brisbane International Film Festival and Tribal Theatre is pleased to bring back the film for four special screenings at 10pm.
“You can laugh, you can cry, you can express yourself – but please don’t hurt each other” – Tommy Wiseau – Director, Writer, Producer, Executive Producer & Actor.
Join the madness and BYO beer & wine – plastic spoons will be provided!

||Warren Miller’s 60th annual film Dynasty reveals the past, present, and future of winter sport. It is a film that gathers the generations under one filmic roof, from the Crist Family Patriarch to Glen Plake to Daron Rahlves, and the youth explosion of terrain park talent they’ve inspired. It’s like a family reunion, held in neck-deep snow, with mandatory air required for entry. Once again hosted by Jonny Moseley, this year’s film finds epic snowfall, insane big mountain lines, and huge air in places like Washington’s Crystal Mountain, Lake Tahoe’s Sierra Nevada mountains, and all across Colorado. It leaves no snowball unturned in celebrating everyone who has, does, and will forever be a part of Warren Miller’s Dynasty.
