The Albia Restoration Days Committee is getting a jump start on the annual festival Thursday through Saturday, Aug. 1-3, reminding people of the “50’s” theme with a special showing of “Grease.” The freewill offering hit movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John will be Thursday, July 18, 7 p.m. at the King Opera House.

The showing is being done in conjunction with the King Opera House where the annual Follies will also take place on Thursday, Aug. 1 and Friday, Aug. 2. The show will also carry a “50’s” theme featuring three musical styles from the 1950’s. On Saturday’s main festival day, the parade has a 50’s theme, then a reunion of Slick Valdez and Exxons happens at 3 p.m. with the fabulous Richie Lee and his Buddy Holly review that evening.
