Vote for Movies on the SquareKnox County Public Library’s Movies on Market Square is gearing up for its 13th season of family-friendly outdoor movies in the heart of downtown Knoxville.  

On six consecutive Friday nights from September 9-October 14, the public is invited to bring the whole family, including their favorite, well behaved four-pawed, tail-wagging companion, to see a free movie presented by Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union. 
 
The public will decide the lineup through an online vote at www.knoxlib.org/movies, or at polling stations at all Knox County Public Library locations and at and at Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union’s Downtown Knoxville Branch located at 301 Wall Avenue.

Contenders include movies in the following categories: Action in the Air, Classic Disney, Modern Mickey, Magical Movies and Date Night Rom-Com. Some of the top picks squaring off this year include Frozen versus Finding Nemo, Star Wars versus Top Gun, Legally Blonde versus Sleepless in Seattle. 
 
Voting begins today and runs through August 22 at www.knoxlib.org/movies.  The winning lineup will be announced on August 26 on www.knoxlib.org and through media outlets.

This event directly aligns with our values and commitment to not only serve people financially, but to serve our community. We are thrilled to be involved in an event that brings family-friendly entertainment into the heart of our city. Without our community we wouldn’t be able to do what we love to do. We are very thankful to be working with the Knox County Public Library to bring this event to life,” commented Kristina Howard, Marketing Director.
