Jon Heder to talk 'Napoleon Dynamite' after movie screening

Almost 15 years later, we're still quoting this cult classic

Heck yes! 

On Sunday, Nov. 18, the cultural phenomenon "Napoleon Dynamite" will be screened at the Merriam Theater and star Jon Heder, who so memorably portrayed the awkward moptop, will be there.

He'll be joined by castmates Efren Ramirez and Tina Majorino, the actors who played Pedro (Vote for Pedro!) and Deb, to discuss the 2004 cult classic after the screening.
