Spinning Path and Exeter Phoenix Presents a very special screening of cult-classic The Room, with star Greg Sestero in attendance. Make sure to have your spoons at the ready and brace yourselves for what can only be described as a night (and a movie) to remember!
Johnny (Wiseau) is a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa (Danielle). One day, inexplicably, she gets bored of him and decides to seduce Johnny’s best friend, Mark (Sestero). From there, nothing will be the same again.
The film, which is written, directed, starring and financed by the eccentric Tommy Wiseau, quickly gained cult status as ‘the Citizen Kane of bad movies’ and gathered a loyal fanbase across the globe. Wherever The Room goes, a sold out screening usually follows.
If you’ve never seen the film, now is the time to do it! The best way to watch this film is with a crowd, and our special screening with Greg Sestero in attendance is no exception. Expect audience participation, cheers, jeers and tears, and above all, a fantastic night.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Greg Sestero, co-star of The Room, and Best Selling Author of The Disaster Artist. There will be an opportunity to meet Greg, ask questions, and see behind the scenes of The Room.
First screening: 5.30pm
Meet and Greet: 8pm
Second screening: 8.50pm
ABOUT SPINNING PATH
Spinning Path started when Producer Simeon Costello and Writer/Director Tommy Gillard crossed paths in deepest Devon. Building on a shared love of weird cinema, they sought to create equally obscure short films. And they haven’t looked back.
Since making BFI London Film Festival 2020 Best Short Film Shuttlecock, Spinning Path has been hosting a regular pop-up cinema event and is sharing a variety of films from underground cult genre movies, to films that are so bad they’re good, and films that you’ve heard of but may not have had the chance to see before.
