Outdoor ‘Grease’ screening moved to Sept. 6

If you were planning on attending the Inlander Sounds & Cinema showing of "Grease," which was scheduled to show at 6:30 Thursday night in Kendall Yards, better change your plans.

The outdoor screening was postponed, the paper reports, "due to unhealthy air conditions." The event has been moved to Sept. 6.

Unless you've been asleep for the past several days, smoke from regional fires have permeated the Inland Northwest. As of this afternoon, the Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency reported Spokane County's air quality index at 172. Any reading above 150 is considered "unhealthy."

The screening of "Grease," part of The Pacific Northwest Inlander's summer-movie series — Suds & Cinema — celebrates the 40th anniversary of the 1978 film, which was directed by Randal Kleiser and stars John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John and Stockard Channing.

The series is held in Olmsted Park, which is located at 2335 W. Summit Parkway. Click here to access the Inlander's events Facebook page.
