The Cast From Napoleon Dynamite Coming To Cedar Rapids
"Grandma just called. She said you should go home because you're ruining everyone's lives and eating all the steak."
That's just one of the memorable lines from Napoleon Dynamite, the 2004 movie starring Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez and Jon Gries.
Heder played Napoleon, Gries was Uncle Rico and Ramirez played everyone's favorite nerd, Pedro. The three stars of the film will be making an appearance in Cedar Rapids on Sunday, September 27 at the Paramount Theatre.
It's being called, "Napoleon Dynamite: Live in Conversation." The evening includes a full screening of the movie, followed by a lively, freewheeling, moderated discussion with the cast members.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, February 14 via Ticketmaster. There will also be a limited number of VIP "meet and greet" pre-show tickets available for sale as well.
I'm told there will be plenty of surprises before, during and after the show. Expect Llamas, deep fryers, cake and enough tater tots to feed half of Linn County.
If you have a question for the cast, there will be a Q & A session immediately following the show. If you ask me, this is the coolest part of the night.
Special thanks to the gang at USA Entertainment Agency for bringing this show to the historic Paramount Theatre in downtown Cedar Rapids.
Now go get me some tots, I'm hungry!
