So begins Tommy Wiseau's first draft of what eventually became his landmark 2001 film THE ROOM. In celebration of THE DISASTER ARTIST movie release this December and THE ROOM's 15-year anniversary, co-star, line producer, and former Wiseau roommate Greg Sestero is coming to town to present an exclusive behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of THE ROOM. The evening will also include a live reading of this first edition of Tommy's screenplay, which features settings, dialogue, and plot devices that never made it on screen! If you're a long-time Wiseau fan, this will be a rare glimpse into the original vision of one of the most iconic cinematic figures of the twenty-first century. The live reading will feature some audience members selected that night! Greg will also read from his memoir THE DISASTER ARTIST, followed by a Q&A and book signing. This event will also feature a sneak peak at Tommy and Greg's 2018 reunion feature film BEST F(R)IENDS!

alt "Soviet director Andrei Tarkovsky's great meditation on the imperiled future of humanity. No other film maker so powerfully evokes a world of the spirit existing beyond surface appearances, and in doing so, Tarkovsky creates some of the most piercingly beautiful images ever captured on film."
-- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

Drama; In Swedish and French with English subtitles and in English; 145 minutes; 1986

"Andrei Tarkovsky's last film is a grand, unworldly, even antiworldly religious vision...The blend of midlife crisis and existential terror is reminiscent of the films of Ingmar Bergman, but Tarkovsky makes it a world of his own. His images have a transcendental glow."
-- Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky
Starring Erland Josephson, Valerie Mairesse, Susan Fleetwood, Allan Edwall, Guorun Gisladottir
