    Last Sunday we watched the 1979 bicycle film Let the Bullets Fly and this week we’re watching Napoleon Dynamite:

    The movie will be presented in English with Chinese subtitles, so bring your Chinese friends and introduce them to this movie. Two of my favorite movie characters, Kip and Rex Kwan Do, are both in this film. Gosh!

    About Napoleon Dynamite

    The directorial debut of filmmaker Jared Hess, who also co-wrote the screenplay, 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 some nontraditional means, Napoleon is determined to help his pal Pedro (Efrem Ramirez) run a winning campaign and defeat popular girl Summer (Haylie Duff). Also starring The Drew Carey Show’s Diedrich Bader, Napoleon Dynamite premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival

    Here’s the trailer on Youtube:

    About the Banana Boat

    The Banana Boat is our completely mobile music and movie setup, built into a rickshaw. We cycle somewhere, stop, and within 5 minutes we’re watching movies or playing music.

    A photo of the first outdoor movie night where we watched The Karate Kid:

    The location is in the Yulin neighborhood, about a 2 minute walk away from the Laoma Tou Hotpot Restaurant. The name of the alley that we’ll be on is ???? and if you search for it on Baidu or Google Maps you should see where it’s located.

    Or if you have a bicycle, ride to the location with us from the Natooke Bicycle Shop at 7:30pm. Arrive at 7pm if you can!
