Kevin Smith heads to Tampa Theatre this fall for special 'Clerks III' screening

Like many of Smith’s films, 'Clerks III' is somewhat autobiographical, mirroring the aftermath of his own heart attack in 2018.

The newest chapter of the 1994 cult classic indie film “Clerks” is coming to Tampa Theatre this October.

“Clerks III: The Convenience Tour” will happen at the theater Oct. 23 and feature a live post-show Q&A session with writer and director Kevin Smith who also stars as Silent Bob in the film.

Smith’s 1994 low-budget black-and-white comedy follows store clerks Dante Hicks and Randal Graves through a day in their lives dealing with customers and friends. “Clerks III” revisits Randal and Dante as the pair set out to make a film about the convenience store following Randal’s life-threatening heart attack.
Tickets for the show and Q&A session are on sale now starting at $35 from Tampa Theatre.

Like many of Smith’s films, “Clerks III” is somewhat autobiographical, mirroring the aftermath of his own heart attack in 2018.

“Clerks” launched Smith’s career, winning the Award of the Youth and the Mercedes-Benz Award at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival and the Filmmakers Trophy at Sundance Film Festival. In 2019, it was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry as being culturally significant.
