At WonderCamp we encourage courageous experimentation, use actual scientific terms and tools, introduce kids to working scientists, and help kids embrace failure as part of learning. All camp sessions are designed to build curious and creative problem solvers, inspired by the wonder of science. We listen – to the kids, their adults, teachers, and visiting scientists – and intentionally make our camps more robust and exciting each year.
Please select camps that are appropriate for your child’s age, interests, and abilities. WonderCamp may not be appropriate if your child has not yet had a Pre-K experience away from home
WonderLab is committed to lowering the carbon footprint of camp. We encourage campers to bring reusable water bottles and sustainably wrapped and packaged food.

The Room Screening

07:00 pm to 09:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater

“Oh Hai, Bloomington!”

The BEST bad film of all time returns to the Buskirk-Chumley Theater in March 2020. Since its release in 2004, The Room has become a once-in-a-generation sensation, referred to as “the Citizen Kane of bad movies,” and even inspiring a hit Hollywood film, The Disaster Artist, starring James Franco as enigmatic auteur Tommy Wiseau. This is your chance to catch it on the big screen the way it was intended to be seen… with a big group of friends during a night out.

Featuring a bonkers plot, endlessly quotable lines, highly questionable acting, and some of the most “intense” football action in movie history, The Room is a masterpiece of cinema that demands to be seen with a large group. It’s going to be a party, so invite all of your friends (“Good thinking!”). Or are you a little chicken? Cheep-chip-chip-Cheep-Cheep!

The Room has been running for over a decade in Los Angeles and has now taken the rest of the country by storm. You’ll want to be there for the devastation it will leave in its wake!

The Room is rated R for language and some of the dumbest sex scenes in movie history.

Prop bags include spoons, rose petals, and other ridiculous items that are used for priceless moments of audience interaction.

All proceeds from the ticket sales go to support Cardinal Stage.
