Sunshine Cinema’s midnight screenings of The Room (“the Citizen Kane of bad movies”) are always a blast: b-movie lovers line up to revel in the melodrama’s stilted acting, tin-eared dialogue, and the kind of wtf props that spur everyone to throw plastic spoons at the screen. But Saturday night’s engagement was extra special – not only was there the usual frenzied Q&A with writer, director, actor Tommy Wiseau, but there were several sold-out screenings of the international man of mystery’s new sitcom, The Neighbors.

Kurt Russell Rocks An Eyepatch, Tommy Wiseau IRL, Get Freaky With Danish Vampyrs

It’s that time of the week again, y’all. Here’s a list of a moving pictures we’re excited to see.


Escape From New York
This is early ’80s sci-fi action at its finest.
