Of the wonders that Kevin Smith’s 1994 indie landmark Clerks introduced to the world, perhaps the most glorious was the duo of Jay and Silent Bob, the stoner pairing who loitered outside the film’s central convenient store. Played by the writer-director and his friend Jason Mewes, the duo popped up in later Smith films like Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma, and eventually starred in their own vehicle Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. They’re back on the big screen and touring around the country with their new feature Jay & Silent Bob Reboot, a meta Hollywood satire filled with self-aware cameos from Smith regulars — Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jason Lee, Joey Lauren Adams and more. This roadshow event will kick off with a screening of the film, followed by a Q&A with Smith and Mewes.
