Kick off 2015 with a movie night Friday, Jan. 2, at Firehouse Performing Arts Center, 1314 Harris Ave.
“Napoleon Dynamite” is a quirky, offbeat comedy set in the small Idaho town of Preston. Jon Heder stars in the titular role, a carrot-topped oddball with a decidedly eccentric family that includes his llama-loving, dune-buggy enthusiast grandmother.
The story centers on the local high school’s race for class president. Using nontraditional means, Napoleon is determined to help his pal Pedro (Efrem Ramirez) run a winning campaign and defeat popular girl Summer (Haylie Duff). “Napoleon Dynamite” premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.
A social hour begins at 6:30 p.m., with the movie at 7. All ages welcome.
