Prepare for an evening of unparalleled insight into an era-defining cult hit.

- A live reading of selected scenes from the first edition of Wiseau's screenplay, featuring settings, dialogue and plot devices that never made it to the screen.

- A Q&A and book event (sale and signing) with Sestero.
- A screening of THE DISASTER ARTIST.

THE DISASTER ARTIST
With THE DISASTER ARTIST, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau — an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable — into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero's best-selling tell-all about the making of Wiseau's cult-classic disasterpiece THE ROOM ("The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made"), THE DISASTER ARTIST is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend — and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you're doing. Also starring Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Ari Graynor, Josh Hutcherson and Jacki Weaver. DIR/PROD James Franco; SCR Scott Neustadter, Michael H. Weber, from the book by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell; PROD Evan Goldberg, Vince Jolivette, Seth Rogan, James Weaver. U.S., 2017, color, 103 mins. RATED R " /> AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center

"A Night Inside THE ROOM" + THE DISASTER ARTIST

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT

In person: Greg Sestero

"This play can be played without any age restriction. It will work if the chemistry between all the characters makes sense. Human behavior and betrayal applies to all of us. It exists within ourselves. You love somebody. Do you? What is love?" So begins the first draft of Tommy Wiseau's script for what eventually became his landmark 2003 film THE ROOM.
