Finding things to do in Houston can be a struggle, particularly when the regular avenues of museums, parks and endless food feel exhausted. As a result, one Friday evening found me and Sports Designer Tina Liu entering an abandoned-looking entertainment center, emboldened by the promise of taking perfect Instagram photos while simultaneously regaled by an interactive art experience. We had bought tickets to Houston’s first popular “Instagram Museum,” coined by its creators as TFTI.

“The Room,” a 2003 film directed by and starring Tommy Wiseau, is frequently ranked among the worst movies of all time. Featuring bizarre storytelling, gaping plot holes and an ostentatious amount of loud sex, the poorly made film has become a cult favorite.
