Watershed and Bristol Bad Film Club are proud to announce a very special event with Greg Sestero for a screening of the ‘Citizen Kane of Bad Films’ - The Room.

Greg Sestero is the co-star of cult film The Room and best-selling author of The Disaster Artist, a memoir of his time as an aspiring actor in Hollywood, which led to his bizarre friendship with Tommy Wiseau, the mysterious and iconoclastic director of The Room.

The premise behind the film is a simple one: It is the story of a banker named Johnny (Wiseau) who suspects that his fiancée Lisa may be sleeping with his best friend Mark (Sestero).

However, surrounding this simple love triangle is a car-crash of cinematic head-scratching conundrums. Various subplots are introduced and then either ignored or not resolved, rooftop scenes are done with awful green-screen effects, and then there are the two awkwardly long and incredibly unerotic sex scenes.

The cult film, which is the true definition of bad cinema, has become a worldwide phenomenon and has attracted an army of loyal followers, playing to sold out screenings around the world.

If you’ve never seen The Room, you will have at least heard of it and you owe it to yourself to finally see what all the fuss is about. Love it or hate it, you’ll never forget it.

Bring the spoons.
