The Iowa City Community Band will perform at the Saturday Night Movie Series event at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The performance will take place on the Pentacrest and will be followed by the film, Men in Black.

Bob Brady, the band manager for the Iowa City Community Band, said he is excited about the band playing for a crowd other than what the performers are used to.

"Saturday night will have people who are coming to see a movie," he said. "People who are just out for a good evening. It's a free movie for them, so we like to play for them."

Brady said the band has evolved.

"We're not just a park band anymore," he said. "We go where people want us. It's a band for people in the community to get together and have a good time."

The group has performed since 1958, other than a few years' hiatus. As a summer band, it performs seven concerts a year including a holiday concert.

Both the performance and the movie will be free. The movie, hosted by the Free Movie Series as a part of the Summer of the Arts, will begin promptly after the concert.
