`Dynamite' screening

"Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day."

If you don't recognize that quote, you are officially out of the loop, but if you did you probably smiled and thought about seeing Napoleon Dynamite again. Here's a chance for both the Dynamite lovers and the out-of-loopers to catch one of last year's funniest indie flicks for free: At 9 p.m. Saturday, Johns Hopkins screens Napoleon Dynamite on the green in front of Gilman Hall (formerly known as the Keyser Quadrangle). Diedrich Bader, who played Rex the crazy fitness guy in the film, will be at the showing.

The "Napoleon Dynamite" showing is part of the JHU Summer Outdoor Film Series on Saturday nights. Other screenings are June 18 and July 9, 16 and 23. Screenings will be held on the upper quad of the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. Call 410-516-4548 or visit www.jhu.edu/summer.
