The Room screening
Wednesday, January 10, 8 p.m., Regal Natomas Marketplace Stadium 16, $12.50
Who’s to say a bad movie can’t inspire a great one? Case in point: The Room. Without the 2003 indie film with its 26 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating, we’d never see James Franco shine as the star in The Disaster Artist, a behind-the-scenes retelling of the production of The Room. Whether you’re an unabashed (and non-ironic) lover of the original film, or just want to see what all the fuss is about, join audiences in more than 500 cities to watch The Room. 3561 Truxel Road, www.fathomevents.com.
