The Charleston Music Hall is thrilled to present "one of the worst films ever made," The Room, on November 7th at 7:30 pm. The showing is being held in anticipation of the upcoming release of The Disaster Artist on December 1st.
In 2003, an independent film called The Room - starring , written, produced, and directed by the mysterious Tommy Wiseau — made its debut. The $6 million film earned a total of $1,800 at the box office, closed after two weeks, and was universally panned. Despite that, the film has gained a cult following.
In 2014, Greg Sestero and Tom Bisell released The Disaster Artist, a book that brings readers behind-the-scenes of the disastrous film. Actor and filmmaker James Franco has created a film based on the book which will be released in December. The movie stars Seth Rogen, Dave Franco, Alison Brie, Zoey Deutch, Zac Efrron, and more.
