Downtown Phoenix's FilmBar Expands Its Late Night Programming
You'll have to wait a little longer to watch (and mock) an equally awful and vitriolic-inducing video of The Room, the 2003 flick that's been dubbed the "Citizen Kane of bad movies.
According to local cult movie guru Andrea Beesley, who's overseeing the late night events, the film will start monthly showings in March and - much like they have whenever The Room hits the big screen - the audience is encouraged to mock it mercilessly and toss plastic spoons (a riff on a bizarre shot of a framed photo of the utensil that takes place during the movie).
Beesley, better known as the Midnite Movie Mamacita, will also be bringing two of her signature cinematic events to FilmBar as a part of the late night programming, including The Dr. Diabolic Show (where classic horror and sci-fi gems are dug up for public viewing in-between interactive games and trivia) and Ms. Behaving (an ongoing series devoted to "bad girl" exploitation flicks and the works of such landmark directors as Roger Corman and Russ Meyers).
Fellow cult film guru Damon Foster, a renowned local expert on Asian cinema (who has also published the magazine Oriental Cinema for more than three decades) will offer up his Tokusatsu Theater repertory series, which promises plenty of chop-socky and gigantic monsters wreaking havoc.
R. Kelly's Trapped in the Closet Sing-Along featuring Treasure Mammal takes place at 10 p.m. on Saturday at FilmBar. Tickets are $10.
