The Room

Saturday, October 10 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.

DOG BY DOG Documentary

Wednesday, October 14 at 6:30 p.m.

The DOG BY DOG Ohio Red Carpet Premiere Week will be attended by animal lovers who support the mission of educating and advocating against “puppy mills” through grassroots advocacy and legislative engagement. In DOG BY DOG, filmmaker Chris Grimes turns his lens on commercial breeders, politicians and advocates to explore the role of money and politics in creating and supporting the nation's "puppy mill industry" while probing the question of why they continue to thrive despite overwhelming public opposition. The film is respectfully done, with no graphic footage. Ohio is featured prominently in the film!

The Columbus screening will be proceeded by a VIP Reception (6:30-7:30 PM) to honor individuals and groups who have made an impact in the fight against puppy mills and animal cruelty in Ohio, followed by the film's screening (7:30-9:00 PM). A Q&A (9-9:30 PM) with special guests will take place immediately following the screening. 100% of proceeds will benefit educational and advocacy efforts of OVCA, Rescue Me Ohio, and the 5414 Productions DBD Educational Fund!
