  • The Disaster Artist: A Night Inside The Room with Greg Sestero

    September 30, 2016

    disaster-artist-flyer-1Our friends at the Five and Dime Picture Show are proud to present a very special final event with our very special guest, Greg Sestero in attendance.

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

The film wrapped in March 2016 with brothers Dave and James Franco as Greg and Tommy, and a star-studded A-List ensemble cast featuring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Bryan Cranston, Sharon Stone, Bob Odenkirk, Hannibal Burress, Alison Brie, Zach Braff, Melanie Griffith, Josh Hutcherson, Jacki Weaver and many more.
