Referred to as “the ‘Citizen Kane’ of bad movies,” “The Room” has received a remarkable resurgence due to the popularity of James Franco’s “The Disaster Artist” and Tommy Wiseau’s recent appearance on The Golden Globes. On January 10, fans came out in droves as Wiseau’s opus hit more than 500 big screens across the nation with “Tommy Wiseau’s ‘The Room.’” Due to overwhelming demand, an encore screening has been set for Friday, January 19, 2018. In addition to the full-length feature, moviegoers will enjoy a special look at the new “Best F(r)iends” trailer, starring Wiseau and Greg Sestero.
Starring Tommy Wiseau, directed by Tommy Wiseau, written by Tommy Wiseau, screenplay by Tommy Wiseau and produced by Tommy Wiseau, “The Room” follows the story of Johnny (Wiseau). Johnny is a bank employee who, seemingly, lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with Lisa, his fiancée. One day she gets bored with Tommy and seduces his best friend, Mark (played by Wiseau’s best friend, Greg Sestero, author of the award-winning 2013 memoir “The Disaster Artist”). Johnny screams, “You’re tearing me apart, Lisa!”– and, with that, nothing, or no one, will ever be the same.
