Summer of the Arts

Iowa City's Summer of the Arts will show free movies on the Pentacrest this summer. Yay! 

Featuring a full-length movie on the University of Iowa Pentacrest outside of Macbride Hall, all are welcome to attend this free movie series. Each Saturday moviegoers enjoy a classic or contemporary feature film. Movies start at sundown, and there will be special entertainment offered prior to some of the feature films. Movies will be shown on a large, inflatable screen which provides a smooth and clear picture for our beautiful outdoor theater. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy the show!


Macbride Hall (on the East side of the building)


At sunset (which varies from 8:15 p.m. to 9 p.m. later in the season).


It's fun! And FREE!
