Have you checked out "The Disaster Artist" yet? How about "The Room"?
Referred to as "the 'Citizen Kane' of bad movies," "The Room" is receiving a remarkable resurgence due to the popularity of James Franco's "The Disaster Artist", in which Franco plays the eccentric real life writer, director and star of "The Room", Tommy Wiseau.
Well you can still see "The Disaster Artist" in theaters now, and "The Room" will have a special screening on January 10th at 8pm. Tickets for "Tommy Wiseau's 'The Room'" can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. And there are several in our area.
For the uninitiated, "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.
Tommy spoke with Shelli about the movie and Tommy lets us know what he thinks about Franco's performance.
