Tommy Wiseau’s The Room Returns to Theaters for 20th Anniversary This Month


The 20th anniversary of the cult classic film, The Room, is being celebrated with a nationwide screening on June 27, 2023. The movie premiered on June 27, 2003, produced, directed and written by Tommy Wiseau. Wiseau also starred in the leading role, alongside Greg Sestero, Juliette Danielle, Philip Haldiman, and Carolyn Minnott. The Room is a romantic drama about a banker named Johnny (Wiseau) whose best friend Mark (Sestero) has an affair with his girlfriend Lisa (Danielle), leading to tragic consequences. The film has become a dark comedy sensation among fans who enjoy the unique acting and dialogue. Fathom Events is presenting special screenings in participating theaters across the United States.


In honor of the 20th anniversary of The Room, Tommy Wiseau invites you to a special celebration of the film. Wiseau says in a special trailer for the anniversary release, “Hi guys, this is Tommy Wiseau, I’d like to invite you to special celebration of The Room. Hope you can make it, enjoy The Room!”

The book, The Disaster Artist, co-written by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell, is based on Sestero’s experiences while making The Room. It was published in 2013 and led to the production of a feature film adaptation released in 2017. The movie starred James Franco in a Golden Globe-winning role as Wiseau, while Dave Franco played Sestero.

The success of the feature film adaptation only brought more attention to The Room and expanded its cult following. As the legacy of The Room endures, it has been revealed that a remake of sorts is in the works, without Wiseau’s involvement. Bob Odenkirk stars in the remake, playing the character of Johnny, made for the benefit of the Foundation for AIDS Research.

Odenkirk has said of his take on the story, “I don’t change the lines, but I do them my own way, in a way that hopefully feels legit and real. And I think I pulled it off some, and then there are scenes that I just couldn’t. You just can’t make them legitimate. I mean, they’re insane. The things that people are saying are so insane!”

However, for many fans, nothing can replace the original film with its unique cast and dialogue. The Room will be screened in theaters on Tuesday, June 27, 2023, for its 20th anniversary. Visit FathomEvents.com to find out where the film is being screened and to buy tickets.

The greatest movie of all time is heading back to the big screen for a nationwide celebration of its 20th anniversary. On June 27, 2003, Tommy Wiseau premiered his cult classic The Rooma film with a production that was just as interesting as the movie itself, inspiring the book and feature film The Disaster Artist. Two decades to the day later, The Room will be screening in participating theaters across the United States, courtesy of Fathom Events.


“Hi guys, this is Tommy Wiseau, I’d like to invite you to special celebration of The Room,” Wiseau says in a special trailer for the anniversary release, seen above. “Hope you can make it, enjoy The Room!”

Wiseau wrote, directed, and produced The Room. He also stars in the lead role, co-starring alongside Greg Sestero, Juliette Danielle, Philip Haldiman, and Carolyn Minnott. The movie is a romantic drama about a banker named Johnny (Wiseau) whose best friend Mark (Sestero) has an affair with his girlfriend Lisa (Danielle), leading to tragic consequences.

The Room star Greg Sestero wrote about his experiences making The Room for the book The Disaster Artistco-written with Tom Bissell and published in 2013. The book led to the production of a feature film adaptation, released in 2017. That movie starred James Franco in a Golden Globe-winning role as Wiseau while Dave Franco played Sestero. The film’s success only led to more attention being brought to The Room and makes its cult following even larger.

As the legacy of The Room endures, it’s also been revealed that a remake of sorts is in the works, though it doesn’t include any involvement from Wiseau. Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk previously confirmed that he’s filmed a remake for the movie that features him in the role of Wiseau’s character. The movie was made for the benefit of the Foundation for AIDS Research.

‘I don’t change the lines, but I do them my own way, in a way that hopefully feels legit and real,” Odenkirk has said of his take on the story. “And I think I pulled it off some, and then there are scenes that I just couldn’t. You just can’t make them legitimate. I mean, they’re insane. The things that people are saying are so insane!”

That may be fun to watch, but for many fans, there will never be any topping the original film just as it was with the original cast. The Room screens in theaters on Tuesday, June 27, for its 20th anniversary. You can find out where the film is screening and pick up tickets at FathomEvents.com.
