Cult Hit The Room to Screen at Joy Theater in November

By: Fritz Esker

It's hard to explain The Room to those who haven't seen it, but the drama about an odd, melodramatic man named Johnny (Tommy Wiseau) and his romantic troubles has been a cult sensation for almost 20 years now. Wiseau and co-star Greg Sestero will be hosting a double feature screening of The Room and Sestero's new film Miracle Valley at the Joy Theater on November 13th.

Miracle Valley will receive its Louisiana premiere at the Joy. It's the directorial debut of Sestero, who also wrote The Disaster Artist about his experiences making The Room (a film was made of Sestero's book in 2017 starring Seth Rogen and James Franco). Miracle Valley is a thriller about cults and human trafficking, and is the first film to ever shoot at Frank Lloyd Wright's world-renowned Falling Water house.

A Q&A session featuring Wiseau and Sestero will precede every screening. Miracle Valley's Q&A will begin at 6 p.m. and the screening will start at 6:20. The Room's Q&A will start at 9 p.m. with the screening at 9:20. Tickets can be purchased for individual screenings or for the full double feature.
