Presented by Lusid Media, this year's Movies on Market Square features the most popular titles from a decade of movies that have been shown on Market Square since the series began in 2004. Since that time, the Library has screened 57 movies. This year's line-up is dominated by blockbusters from the 1980's including E.T the Extra-Terrestrial, The Princess Bride, and Back to the Future. The top vote getter overall was Despicable Me with more than 1,200 votes.

And the winners are:
