Napoleon Dynamite (And Tina) Headed to Michigan
Not gonna lie - I'm a big fan of the "Napoleon Dynamite" movie. It came out in 2004, so it's now celebrating it's 15th anniversary. For a long time it showed up a couple of times a week (at least) on cable TV and I think that's when my kids fell in love with it. After seeing them watching it and cracking themselves up by repeating the lines constantly, I watched and fell in love with it.
To my kids and all fans of everything "Napoleon Dynamite", good news - according to MLive.com, he and the gang are coming to Michigan to watch the movie with you.
And they're bringing Tina. I kid you, not.
Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and Jon Gries (Uncle Rico) will watch the movie with you and answer questions after the movie at two locations in Michigan next January. Tina, the llama (they say this will be the ACTUAL Tina - not some actor playing her part) will make an appearance, so you can scream, "Tina! Eat the food!"
Going on sale today are tickets to the 15th anniversary watch party at Redford Theatre in Detroit on Friday, January 10, 2020. The next night, January 11th, the party will head to the State Theatre in Kalamazoo.
