In case you somehow forgot about the ’90s — it was a hazy decade — director Kevin Smith is bringing his feature film Jay and Silent Bob Reboot to town in the new year.

The New Jersey stoner icons who first hit the screen 25 years ago in Clerks are returning in this plot: When Jay and Silent Bob discover that Hollywood is rebooting an old movie based on them, the clueless duo embarks on another cross-country mission to stop it all over again. The two have appeared in cameos through a number of Smith’s films, including Mallrats, Chasing Amy and the upcoming Moose Jaws, that last of his True North trilogy.

The Jan. 18, 2020, reserved-seating roadshow at the Myer Horowitz Theatre on the University of Alberta campus will feature a Q&A with Smith (who plays Silent Bob).

Tickets running from $59.50 to $79.50 (plus all the fun service charges) go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 20 at livenation.com.
