Napoleon Dynamite: A Conversation with Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez, & Jon Gries at IU Auditorium April 3

Nov 15 / 2019

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The beloved indie classic Napoleon Dynamite is coming to the IU Auditorium for a special viewing of the film and a talk-back with fan-favorite cast members. Napoleon Dynamite: A Conversation with Jon Heder, Efren Remirez, and Jon Gries will take place Friday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now.


This unique evening includes a full screening of Napoleon Dynamite followed by a lively, freewheeling, moderated discussion with legendary cast members Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro), and Jon Gries (Uncle Rico).


The iconic film Napoleon Dynamite was made almost 15 years ago. Since then much has changed; but the characters, as enduring as they are endearing, stay in our hearts. Appealing to the inner-teenager in each of us, the story, and more importantly the dialogue, makes Napoleon Dynamite one of the most quoted movies of our time. This unforgettable movie is sure to make you laugh – and laugh hard – over and over again.


A limited number VIP tickets are available for this event. These include the opportunity to have a meet and greet with all three cast members. VIP ticket holders will also receive a signed poster from the actors and premium seating. Maybe you’ll even get to play catch with Uncle Rico.


Don’t forget the event is BYOT (Bring Your Own Tots)!
