(November 14) THE DISASTER ARTIST screening + Q&A w/ Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber
The Writers Guild of America, East
invites you and one (1) guest to attend a screening of
THE DISASTER ARTIST
Followed by a Q&A with co-writers
Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber

WGA Member Screening (RSVP Required)
Tuesday, November 14, 7:30pm
This event includes a 30-minute post-screening Q&A. As a courtesy to Mr. Neustadter and Mr. Weber, attendees are expected to stay to the end of the event.
In 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. Based on Greg Sestero’sbest-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), THE DISASTER ARTIST is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend — and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.
