Tommy Wiseau’s independently financed, directed, acted and edited cult hit has been playing cinema screens across the world almost every week for 14 years and counting. Wiseau stars as San Francisco banker Johnny, whose fiancée, Lisa (Juliette Danielle), begins an affair with Johnny’s best friend, Mark (Greg Sestero). With a carnivalesque array of Douglas Sirk-meets-John Waters characters meandering in and out of the storyline, this mesmerizing film defies any preconception you have of cinema with its wildly unorthodox approach to filmmaking as a craft.
Screening format: DCP | Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers.
