Do you love an unintentionally hilarious cult classic as much as we do? If you’ve never seen THE ROOM, it’s an experience film fans won’t want to miss this weekend at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema East El Paso.
Join us this week for a special evening with by Greg Sestero, the star of THE ROOM. Sestero is also the author of the New York Times best-selling book, THE DISASTER ARTIST, which became an Academy Award-nominated film.
The evening will include an extended Q&A with Sestero, a live script-reading of the original unedited draft of THE ROOM, and a screening of the movie itself, plus autograph signings, photos, and a few surprises.
Whether or not Tommy Wiseau intentionally shot his film as a “black comedy,” or if he is simply a completely inept filmmaker (and actor) is utterly irrelevant. THE ROOM will stand the test of time as one of the most mind-bending awesome offerings to ever drop from the celluloid heavens.
