It was 2004 when cult classic Napoleon Dynamite came to our screens. The film appealed to the inner teenager in all of us and became one of the most quoted movies of our time.
Below is a description of the Napoleon Dynamite film, provided by CAPA:
Napoleon Dynamite is a new kind of hero, complete with a tight 'fro, sweet moon boots, and skills that can't be topped. Napoleon spends his days drawing mythical beasts, duking it out with his brother Kip, and avoiding his scheming Uncle Rico. When two new friends enter Napoleon's life, shy Deb and mustachioed Pedro, the trio launches a campaign to elect Pedro for class president and make the student body's wildest dreams come true. But if Pedro is to beat stuck-up Summer, Napoleon will have to unleash his secret weapon.
The event is scheduled for Thursday, May 14 at 7:30 pm. Ticket prices range from $25-$100 and can be purchased in-person at the CBUSArts Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), online at www.capa.com, or by phone at (614) 469-0939.
