Special Events At The Drexel

The Room


Saturday, February 13 at Midnight

The Room is an electrifyingly funny cult black comedy audience participation movie about love, passion, betrayal and lies. Writer/director Tommy Wiseau stars as Johnny, a successful banker who feels so badly wronged by those nearest and dearest to him that he finds himself asking, can you ever really trust anyone? THE ROOM screens on the second Saturday at Midnight every month at the Drexel. Tickets are $6.50 and $5.50 for students.








Documentary Screening: THE TRUE COST + Q&A


Thursday, February 18 at 6 pm

The Drexel invites you to a special public screening of the documentary THE TRUE COST on Thursday, Feb. 18 at 6 pm, hosted by Upper Arlington High School student Charlie Mitchell for his Capstone Project.

A Q&A will follow the screening with guests:
Margie Hegg | Lane Bryant Associate VP of Product Development
Kelli Martin | Anti.Label & Former Project Runway contestant
Christina McKenna | Thread Brand Manager

This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing? Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.
