Absolutely Hysterical- The Disaster Artists opens today!Dec 22, 2017
With THE DISASTER ARTIST, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau-an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable-into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds in the making of what may be the worst fil mever made, the midnight cult classic The Room.Drawing on the memoir of the same name, Franco chronicles the making ofThe Room as recalled by Wiseau's friend and reluctant co-star Greg Sestero (played, in a flourish of inspired casting, by Franco's brother Dave). Co-producer and frequent Franco collaborator Seth Rogen plays the foil as the bizarre Wiseau's incredulous script supervisor; also on hand is a cavalcade of surprise comedians and celebrities (no spoilers!), many of whom participate in pitch-perfect recreations of Wiseau's singular vision.What could have been a mean-spirited mockery of one would-be artist's reach exceeding his grasp instead becomes an empathetic character study that is guaranteed to tear Midnight audiences apart! with uproarious laughter. It is a brilliant comedic portrayal of a Hollywood outsider by a Hollywood insider whose own artistic pursuits have consistently defied easy categorization - and the most sincere veneration of a Z-grade auteur since Tim Burton's Ed Wood.SHOWTIMESFri, Dec 15@ 7pm & 9pmSat, Dec 16@ 3pm, 5pm, 7pm & 9pmSun, Dec 17@ 3pm, 5pm, 7pm & 9pmMon, Dec 18 @ 7pm & 9pmTues, Dec 19 @ 7pm & 9pmWed, Dec 20 @ 7pm & 9pmThur, Dec 21 @ 7pm & 9pm"Absolutely Hysterical"-The Hollywood Reporter"Extremely Entertaining"- Boston Globe"Wonderfully weird"-Entertainment Weekly"Funny...An ode to bad taste"- New York Times"Hilarious"- Los Angeles TimesOh, Hi! Help us celebrate the upcoming release of James Franco's eagerly-anticipated adaptation of THE DISASTER ARTIST with a couple special screenings of everyone's favorite so-bad-it's-f*ckin'-awesome film, THE ROOM!!!THE ROOM is a cinematic experience unlike anything you have ever seen - an electrifying, soul-searing explosion of love, passion, betrayal and lies, starring the truly unique writer/director Tommy Wiseau as Johnny, a successful, happy-go-lucky banker with a great job, cool friends and even a girlfriend he hopes will someday be "The One." But wait! Cruel fate is lurking around every corner, and before you can say "Oh, hi doggie!," drugs, deception, soft-core sex and a cheating heart begin to unravel Johnny's life. Our hero is soon trapped by vicious betrayals from everyone around him and he must find a way out before he is torn apart!The ultimate cinematic car crash from which you will definitely NOT want to look away, THE ROOM is a cult sensation that is hilariously awful and borderline surreal in ways that can only be explained by sheer artistic madness. From its gloriously wooden dialogue to its bizarre green screen depiction of San Francisco to its unsettling obsession with spoons, footballs and breast cancer, THE ROOM is a film so deeply insane it must be seen to be disbelieved.SHOWTIMESFri, Dec 15@ 11:30pmSat, Dec 16@ 11:30pmTHE GREATEST, WORST MOVIE EVER MADE!"THE CITIZEN KANE OF BAD MOVIES"On Coney Island in the 1950s, a lifeguard tells the story of a middle-aged carousel operator and his beleaguered wife.WONDER WHEEL tells the story of four characters whose lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of the Coney Island amusement park in the 1950s: Ginny (Kate Winslet), an emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress in a clam house; Humpty (Jim Belushi), Ginny's rough-hewn carousel operator husband; Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a handsome young lifeguard who dreams of becoming a playwright; and Carolina (Juno Temple), Humpty's long-estranged daughter, who is now hiding out from gangsters at her father's apartment.Filmmaker Woody Allen and cinematographer Vittorio Storaro capture a tale of passion, violence, and betrayal that plays out against the picturesque tableau of 1950s Coney Island.SHOWTIMESFri, Dec 15@ 6:30pm & 8:45pmSat, Dec 16@ 2:30pm, 4:30pm, 6:30pm & 8:45pmSun, Dec 17@ 2:30pm, 4:30pm, 6:30pm & 8:45pmMon, Dec 18 @ 6:30pm & 8:45pmTues, Dec 19 @ 6:30pm & 8:45pmWed, Dec 20 @ 6:30pm & 8:45pmThur, Dec 21 @ 6:30pm & 8:45pm"Kate Winslet delivers her most powerful, emotionally resonant performance in more than a decade-IndieWire"Kate Winslet is on fire in Woody Allen's Wonder Wheel...Her performance is absolutely astounding"-Rolling StoneTHE NUTCRACKERFrom the World's greatest stages, to the big screen at O Cinema Miami Beach.
