‘The Room’ With Greg Sestero Live Is Coming to Lubbock’s Alamo Drafthouse
Lubbock's Alamo Drafthouse (120 W Loop 289) will host a special screening of Tommy Wiseau's epic and iconic film The Room, with star Greg Sestero in attendance.
From Alamo Drafthouse:
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-bendingly awesome offerings to ever drop from the celluloid heavens.
Completely financed and distributed by Mr. Wiseau, this divine piece of WTF-ery has built a cult following playing midnight screenings across the country and solidified its place as an insanely unique phenomenon. The Guardian described it as a mix of "Tennessee Williams, Ed Wood and R. Kelly's Trapped in the Closet." That's about as apt a description as we could possibly provide
Actor Greg Sestero will appear live at the screening. Since co-starring in THE ROOM, Sestero has co-written the book "The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made."
The screening will be held Saturday, February 22nd. Tickets are available at drafthouse.com.
