Are we in the trust tree? I’m going to level with you, I’ve been hearing how bananas Tommy Wiseau’s The Room is for many years but I have never actually seen it. It was one of those things that I just kept putting off. Why watch a movie universally considered terrible when there are SO many great films I could be watching instead? But it was one of those things people kept telling me I needed to experience. After all the early buzz at SXSW I sort of conceded and read The Disaster Artist. The early word plus the trailer made me feel like I needed to prep for the upcoming James Franco film, which looks to proudly stand next to Ed Wood as a great film about bad filmmaking.
As I was reading the book I grappled with whether or not to view The Room before The Disaster Artist or if I should be going in cold to better enjoy the film. It seems as though the decision has kind of been made for me, as yesterday I found out that A24 is screening The Room for FREE in Boston on 11/9!
The screening sounds amazing, with the first 15 people dressed as Tommy or Lisa receiving VIP seating and there will be additional prizes available for anyone in costume.
Take a look at the information below for additional details and be sure to download your free passes HERE!
Seating is first come first served, so be sure to suit up and arrive early. Join me in getting prepped for The Disaster Artist premiering on 12/8!
