“Napoleon Dynamite: The Film and a Conversation With Stars Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez and Jon Gries” goes on sale at 12 p.m. Friday for a date at Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12.

Enjoy a screening of the beloved indie classic “Napoleon Dynamite” followed by a lively, freewheeling and moderated discussion with cast members Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Ramirez (Pedro … vote for Pedro!) and Jon Gries (Uncle Rico).

“Napoleon Dynamite” was released in 2004, and, even though much has changed since then, the characters remain relevant, appealing to the inner teenager in all of us. The story (tater tots, anyone?) and dialogue make “Napoleon Dynamite” one of the most-quoted movies of all time.

Tickets are $35-$55, and a VIP ticket at $150 includes a seat in the first five rows, meet-and-greet with the actors, photo opportunity and signed commemorative poster. To buy tickets and for more information, go to

“Napoleon Dynamite” at the Fox follows in the footsteps of Chevy Chase and his screening of “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” and a talk afterward on Nov. 29 and Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes and their “Jay & Silent Bob Rebooted” on Jan. 15.

The Fox theater box office is not open for in-person service, but box office staff are available for questions at, or people can leave a message at (509) 624-1200 and staff will get back to callers ASAP.
