If you’ve seen The Room – the 2003 cult film considered by many to be the worst movie ever made – you know that breast cancer is an important issue in the film. In the sublimely idiotic script by Tommy Wiseau (who also directed, produced and starred in the movie), a leading character casually reveals she “definitely has breast cancer,” only to have the issue completely glossed over and never mentioned again.
To pay homage to The Room’s profound and sensitive handling of the illness, the people behind The Room Montreal Monthly Screenings have decided to raise funds for others who “definitely” have breast cancer. Proceeds from this month’s April 9th screening will go to the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation.
The Room Screening: Saturday April 9 at 8pm @ Cinema de Sève – 1400 De Maisonneuve West.
Advance tickets ($13) can be purchased at Cheap Thrills (2044 Metcalfe), and tickets will be sold at the door for $15.
