Why are people crazy into The Room? Time Out asked its director and superfans.

It’s late on a Friday night—well after 1am—and the projector at Second Avenue’s Village East has just broken down midfilm. The audience, a loud one, doesn’t seem to care. A scene is already in progress. There’s a tiny band at the end of an aisle (guitar, accordion, cardboard box), stomping out Michael Jackson songs; girls sashay while their dates watch. When the movie finally restarts, the party won’t get any quieter. Characters will be warmly greeted in unison (“Hi, Denny!”) or roundly spanked (“Who are you?!?”). Occasionally, a rain of plastic spoons will be hurled screenward. In a month, these same viewers will reassemble and do it all again.
