Movies on Market Square Starts Sept. 10

Posted: 09/01/2010
Knox County Public Library's popular outdoor movie series returns to Market Square for the seventh year of free family fun in front of the silver screen.

The series will run for six Friday nights, from September 10 through October 15. The movies begin at dusk (around 8:30 p.m.).

The Lineup:

September 10/Iron Man/PG-13
September 17/Charlotte's Web/G
September 24/Cats and Dogs/PG
October 1/Pretty in Pink/PG-13
October 8/The Spy Next Door/PG
October 15/Hitchcock's North by Northwest/Not Rated

The final line up includes selections that were not offered in the popular Pick the Flicks vote because of certain licensing restrictions. The Library was unable to guarantee a small enough audience to obtain viewing rights to those films. Our apologies for the mix-up, and we hope you enjoy the substitute films.

Each year, the Library puts on Movies on Market Square to highlight its vast collection of film and music. Audiovisual items now account for just over half of all circulating items at Lawson McGhee Library. Last year, over 422,000 DVDs, CDs, and audio books were checked out throughout the county.

Movies on Market Square is made possible through the generous support of Comcast, Pilot, PetSafe, The Tomato Head, Downtown Knoxville, City People, the City of Knoxville, Magpies, Metro Pulse, WBIR, B97.5 and Lunar Cinemas.
