YOU'RE TEARING ME APART LISA!!! As part of its commitment to cinema of all varieties and forms, Bijou Film Board presents what might be the worst movie ever made, Tommy Wiseau's The Room (2003), as part of the After Hours film series.

Johnny (Tommy Wiseau) is a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa (Juliette Danielle). One day, inexplicably, she gets bored of him and decides to seduce Johnny's best friend, Mark (Greg Sestero). From there, nothing will be the same again.

Bijou Film Board is a nonprofit, student-run organization dedicated to the exhibition of independent, foreign, and classic cinema. After Hours is our catch-all film series which is dedicated to cult classics, genre films, and recent releases. Prizes are given out before the film begins at every After Hours screening!

All Bijou programming is FREE for UI students and $8 for the general public, screened at FilmScene (at the Chauncey) at 404 E College St.

Free student tickets for After Hours films must be claimed in-person at the FilmScene box office. To purchase general admission tickets in advance, visit the FilmScene website at ic.filmscene.org/series-special-events/ .
