GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- You may have seen that the actor from Napoleon Dynamite was at the Avalon Theatre Friday night. Well, a local pizza place decided to have a little fun with it.
Junct'n Square Pizza decided it was the perfect night to host Napoleon Dynamite night. The whole ordeal was complete with costumes and, of course, tots. Duh.
The employees say this was a fun way to spend a Friday with customers and welcome the movie icon.
"It's a funny movie, it's got a lot of acclaim," Gandy Ebrecht, an employee dressed as "Rex Kwon Do" from the movie. "If it's still lasting after close to 20 years it's got some staying power there, and we get cheap laughs out of it too. I think that's the real reason that I'm here is just to make fun of my boss and her silly costume."
The event at the Avalon included a full screening of the movie and a meet and greet with Jon Heder, who played Napoleon Dynamite in the movie.
