Bust out those plastic spoons! THE ROOM is returning to The Frida Cinema!
Tommy Wiseau’s peerless magnum opus finds the auteur who shaped a generation taking on the arts of acting, writing, casting, directing, editing and more. What’s even more remarkable: he’s mastered them all. In Wiseau’s The Room, Johnny is a big-time banker working in gorgeously shot San Francisco. His fiancé Lisa, seemingly a happy part of a successful relationship, has wandering eyes… Enter Mark. When two becomes three, nothing will ever be the same. The Room is an intense, sensual thriller punctuated with brilliant musical contributions by Mladen Milicevic, Jarah Gibson, Clint Gamboa, Kitra Williams & Reflection.
Wiseau’s intricately knit web of sweet secrets and bitter lies interrogates the very form of drama itself, abandoning a slick and finished aesthetic to showcase his inventive and creative spirit. Especially notable is Wiseau’s masterful naturalistic acting. Join us and witness a master at work. This is truly unforgettable cinema.
