The Island Film Group will present “The Band Wagon” as its movie for August at the Bainbridge Public Library.

The Academy Award-nominated musical-comedy was released in 1953 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and stars Fred Astaire, Cyd Charisse, Oscar Levant, and Nanette Fabray.

The plot: A pretentiously artistic director is hired for a new Broadway musical and changes it beyond recognition. The film (later an inspiration for multiple Michael Jackson music videos) includes iconic moments such as the “Dancing in the Dark” sequence as well as the hit song, “That’s Entertainment.”

Following the screening, film group members will lead a discussion.

The movie will be shown at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14 at the library.
