Tommy Wiseau's 'The Room' is getting a wide theatrical release

Tommy Wiseau's 'The Room' is getting a wide theatrical release

Cult film The Room is getting a lot more attention lately thanks to James Franco's new film The Disaster Artist, which is a behind-the-scenes dramatization of the making of The Room. Wiseau envisioned The Room as a tragedy in the vein of Tennessee Williams, although he now describes the film as a black comedy.

One bravura sequence sees the exasperated crew desperately try to help their director to remember his lines - to little avail.

Cinemas across America are finally making room for The Room. He adds that he's hoping to also have a screening at the Hollywood Bowl on the film's 15th anniversary, June 24.

As part of the event, Fathom will debut a new trailer for Best F (r) iends, the latest cinematic collaboration of Wiseau and Sestero. An official website, in true Wiseau fashion, includes a crude map of all of the theaters which will be playing the film, all of them including Wiseau's face on the poster.

"It's really great because it's going to tackle the other areas where people aren't aware of The Room still", Wiseau told The Hollywood Reporter.

"I've never called it a cult phenomenon, or whatever they call it", said Wiseau to THR. We The Room screening experts here at Den of Geek highly recommend that long-time fans call your respective participating theater to inquire about their Spoon Policy ahead of time. I encourage people to express themselves in the screenings.

When it was first released in 2003, "The Room" took just in $1,8000, ran for only two weeks and was promoted nearly entirely through a lone Hollywood billboard. 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"). But yes, Wiseau is right: The Fathom release will open the full Room communal experience to several markets that haven't had the honor up until now.
