The Summer of the Arts' Free Movie Series will show the film Hugo on Saturday on the Macbride lawn. Pre-film activities will be in conjunction with the Iowa Book Festival.

The 2011 family film Hugo was based on a popular children's book The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Because of its literary origins, Summer of the Arts Director Lisa Barnes said it was an ideal pick for the week of the Book Festival.

"We're always excited to collaborate with other groups, and because of the fact that the Iowa Book Festival is this weekend, it just seemed to make sense to have a movie that's based on a book," Barnes said. "It's always fun to support other events that are going on in the area."

The Free Movie Series is, as advertised, free of charge and open to the public. The showing of Hugo will begin between 8:20 p.m. and 9 p.m., following the Book Festival activities.
