the room screenings

Since first baffling audiences in 2003, The Room has solidified its place in the pantheon of bad movies – it’s the kind of disaster that makes you wonder if writer/director Tommy Wiseau is an alien who has never seen human beings interact before. Naturally, the story of how this movie got made is just as crazy as the movie itself and it’s told in A24’s excellent The Disaster Artist, which hits theaters in December.

But before that, A24 is hosting a nationwide series of The Room screenings to acquaint or re-acquaint audiences with Wiseau’s must-see disaster-piece. And we have some tickets to give away!

James Franco The Disaster Artist

I am not joking when I say that James Franco should receive serious awards consideration for his performance in The Disaster Artist, a film in which Franco plays Tommy Wiseau, the writer/director/star of 2003’s The Room, widely regarded as one of the worst films ever made. Having seen Wiseau speak in real life following a screening of his most recent movie at Beyond Fest earlier this year, it’s astonishing how perfectly Franco slips into that persona. Not only is the accent spot-on, but the physicality and the way he carries himself is a direct match. It’s a wonderful performance.

But here’s the best part. Franco, a prolific filmmaker who’s directed 30 movies or episodes of TV to date, also directed The Disaster Artist – and he directed the whole movie in character as Tommy Wiseau. You can read all about that in Franco’s own words and learn more about the making of the movie below.

the disaster artist review

How did a self-funded, terribly made movie like The Room get such a cult following? By becoming a staple of the Los Angeles skyline.

The Room aggressively advertised itself by erecting a massive billboard overlooking Highland Avenue in Hollywood showing simply Tommy Wiseau‘s face and a cryptic phone number. The billboard stayed up for whopping five years and was so notorious that passerby were surprised when it was finally taken down. But in the spirit of a former Los Angeles landmark, The Disaster Artist brought the billboard back.
