Some people call it the worst movie ever made. Others rank it among their favorites. No matter what your feelings are toward the mysterious piece of film called the "The Room", there is no doubt that it has staying power. Ever since its release in 2003, Tommy Wiseau's famously awful masterpiece has continued to amaze, confuse and, above all, entertain, with its disappearing subplots, its inexplicable tendency to change actors mid-movie, and its vast collection non-sequitur dialogue.
Luckily, for "Room" fans, the actors are still game to talk about their experiences. Greg Sestero, who played Mark (main character Johnny's philandering "best friend") in the film, will be coming to Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in Redondo Beach on Wednesday, January 8th. He'll be promoting his book from last year, "The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made", an inside look into just what went on during the making of the cult classic.
After Greg's discussion, there will be a special in-store screening of the film with "Mysterious Galaxy 3000", a store event where the audience's live MST-3000-style Twitter feed (jokes encouraged!) is displayed alongside the movie. Further information can be found at the Mysterious Galaxy events website here. The event starts at 6 pm. "The Room" is Rated R and intended for mature audiences.
