Music Hall to Host a "Napoleon Dynamite" Screening and Conversation with Jon Heder

On Saturday, February 22nd, 2020, the Charleston Music will host a screening of the beloved indie classic Napoleon Dynamite - complete with a discussion with actor Jon Heder.

The film was made almost 15 years ago, but the unique characters, one-liners, and subsequent memes and gifs remain prominent in people's lives.

The event includes a moderated discussion with "Napoleon" himself, Jon Heder. The actor's portrayal of the nerdy high schooler brought him two MTV Movie Awards, one in the category of “Breakthrough Male” and a second for “Best Musical Performance” for his crowd-pleasing election night dance.

In spring 2007, Heder starred opposite Will Ferrell in the hit comedy Blades of Glory, which took in close to $120 million dollars at the domestic box office. In addition to his live-action roles, Heder also returned to animation that year voicing the character of "Chicken Joe" in Columbia Pictures’ Surfs Up, after previously voicing a role in Columbia’s Monster House.

Heder also starred in the feature films The Benchwarmers, School for Scoundrels, and Just Like Heaven with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffallo. Additionally, he starred opposite Paul Dano in the Sundance hit, For Ellen.
