Cantankerous even with declining health, Big Daddy demands to know why Brick and Maggie haven't yet given him a grandchild, unlike Brick's brother Gooper (Jack Carson) and his fecund wife, Mae (Madeleine Sherwood).



THE ROOM - 15th Anniversary

PLEASE NOTE: Tommy Wiseau will NOT be in attendance for these screenings!!!

Oh hai Prince Charles Cinema website visitor…

Tommy Wiseau's "masterpiece" The Room has been hailed as the biggest cult film since Rocky Horror.

So bad it's good, it's drawn a cult following in the US with viewers acting out skits, storming out in disgust, and throwing plastic cutlery during screenings. However unlike other cult films such as Rocky Horror, or the Big Lebowski, these fans are drawn to how bad they regard the film to be! Come and see the birth of a cult with it's poor score, terrible acting and internet meme generating script.
