Hot off having his book adapted into one of 2017’s best films, Greg Sestero has rocketed into the press cycle for the wider release of Best F(r)iends: Volume One, his new film with The Disaster Artist himself, Tommy Wiseau. The pair, who made myths and legends in 2003 with peerless accidental classic The Room, will reunite in this new Sestero-written drama (note: not a quirky new black comedy) which has Wiseau relenting some control this time as Justin MacGregor takes the directorial reigns. Sound like something worth your time? It sure is, and Sydney’s Hayden Orpheum agrees.

The iconic Sydney theatre will be premiering the film with a special screening on Monday 25th June, and what’s more is that they’ve managed to get babyface to come on down for a revealing Q&A. Greg Sestero, returning to Australia after doing press for The Disaster Artist last year, will be taking to the stage to answer fan questions and no doubt have The Room quotes yelled at him over and over again – which is a good thing, Room quotes are always a good thing. To add value, he’s even hosting a screening of The Room and treating fans to a live reading of his making-of book on which The Disaster Artist was based.

Don’t be a chicken like Peter the “psychaaaalagist”, grab tickets starting from $25 over HERE, and while you’re at it why don’t you go re-visit our two-part interview with Sestero HERE.

Live in Melbourne? You’re not so left out as you thought. Cinema Nova will actually be screening the film first, on June 21st, and Sestero will also be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A. More information can be found HERE.
