'Napoleon Dynamite' cast to speak at Riviera Theatre screening

Better stock up on tater tots. "Napoleon Dynamite" is coming back to a local screen this fall with some special guests in tow.

The cult indie classic, celebrating its 15-year anniversary in June, will be screened at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 16 in the Riviera Theatre (67 Webster St., North Tonawanda).

Following the showing, film stars Jon Heder, who plays the awkward title character, and Efren Ramirez (better known as Napoleon's friend Pedro), will participate in a moderated discussion about the oft-quotable movie.

Advance tickets are $35 and go on sale at noon May 3 through the venue's ticket office, rivieratheatre.org,  or call 692-2413.

A limited number of VIP tickets will be sold for $100 and include a premium seat, meet-and-greet (including photo) with Hader and Ramirez, limited-edition autographed event poster, plus a Boondoggle keychain. Further event details can be found here.
