SANDPOINT — OK, the skies are seriously besmirched with forest fire smoke, but the activities roll on in spite of it. Al Gore’s latest installment in the climate change awareness movement shows tonight and through the weekend at the Panida, along with a classic Jerry Lewis-Dean Martin comedy on the big screen both Friday and Saturday.

Also on Saturday, the Historic Walking Tour of Sandpoint queues up in front of the theater and, on Sunday, historian Nancy Renk leads walking tours of where Sandpoint’s classic theaters once stood.
