It’s been nearly 15 years since cult comedy Napoleon Dynamite hit theaters, but it remains a classic for fans of the hysterical, oddball film that follows quirky teen Napoleon, his brother Kip and his group of misfit friends.


Jon Heder, who played Napoleon Dynamite as his breakout acting role, made an appearance at the Charleston Music Hall in February 2020 to revisit the film and talk with fans of the beloved movie.

On Jan. 21, 2022, at 8 p.m., fans will once again have the chance to relive perhaps one of the most-quoted movies of the 2000s with Heder himself.

Break out your old “Vote for Pedro” T-shirts and head to the Music Hall for a screening of the movie, followed by a conversation with Heder as he opens up about his experience working on the indie classic and his ventures after his debut movie, like staring in the 2007’s Blades of Glory alongside Will Ferrell.

Tickets for this BYOT (bring your own tots) event can be purchased through the Charleston Music Hall’s website. Local presale and VIP tickets will be available Thursday at 10 a.m. and sales to general public will begin Friday at 10 a.m.

General admission tickets are $35 and VIP tickets are $75, which includes premium seating and a meet and greet with Heder himself prior to the movie screening.
