Featuring a very special meet and greet with The Room star Philip Haldiman (Denny) before the movie!
Celebrate 10 glorious years of The Room by mixing, mingling and maybe even tossing a football with Philip Haldiman (â€śOh, Hi Denny!â€ť), one of the stars of this cult phenomenon, at an informal meet and greet on the Loftâ€™s Backlot Bar and Lounge. Philip, who shot to cult film fame as the irrepressible Denny in Tommy Wiseauâ€™s runway hit, will have the latest copies of his new comic book, My Big Break, available for sale and signing, and will be sharing anecdotes from his days on set with the cast and crew of The Room. In this comic book series, Philip chronicles his life in Hollywood, as well as his experiences working on the film. Issue No. 1 of My Big Break offers a surreal sneak peek into his first meeting with Tommy Wiseau and his audition for The Room. This â€śDenny-tasticâ€ť backlot mixer will be followed by a special 10th anniversary screening of the one, the only The Room, and every ticket holder will receive their very own plastic spoon!
The Room is a cinematic experience unlike anything you have ever seen â€“ 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 â€śThe One.â€ť But wait! Cruel fate is lurking around every corner, and before you can say â€śOh, hi doggie!,â€ť drugs, deception, soft-core sex and a cheating heart begin to unravel Johnnyâ€™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. (Dir. by Tommy Wiseau, 2003, 99 mins., Rated R) Digital
About Philip Haldiman
After watching The Room, it's easy to tell that Philip Haldiman wasn't born to act. But the one thing he DID start doing not long after being thrust from the warm confines of his mother's womb was write. It took his experiences in Los Angeles and his time working on the outrageous cult film to come full circle and realize that he should stick to writing. A theater degree, a number of credits in films youâ€™ll never see, a unique cinematic phenomenon and a journalism career later, he looks to his next project â€” a comic book series. By day, Haldiman works as a reporter for The Arizona Republic.
