Dubbed “The Citizen Kane of bad movies,” THE ROOM is about a successful banker, Johnny, who is madly in love with his fiancé, Lisa, and plans to be married next month. His plans take a horrid turn when he finds the truth about Lisa and the people surrounding him. “The Room” depicts the depths of friendship and relationships in one’s life and raises life’s real and most asked question: “Can you ever really trust anyone?”

Q&A with writer, director, and actor Tommy Wiseau will follow the screening. Wiseau is best known for his film, The Room, which has been described as “one of the worst movies ever made” and has gained cult film status. No one knows where he or his accent comes from; Wiseau gives interviews, but is notoriously stingy with details about his personal life. Like the Coneheads, he claims a vague past in France. Like the Coneheads, his accent is most certainly not French. When Wiseau speaks in “The Room,” he sounds like Borat trying to do an impression of Christopher Walken playing a mental patient.
