Based on a community-wide vote, this year's lineup of Knox County Public Library's Movies on Market Square also features a lonely robot, a chief-in-training, super heroes, and some star-crossed singing summer sweethearts.

The series aims to highlight the Library’s vast collection of movies and music with more than 22,000 DVDs representing over 15,000 titles. The Sights and Sounds Department at Lawson McGhee Library has one of the broadest physical collections of film and music of any public library in the Southeast. The Library also recently announced a new streaming film service named Kanopy making more than 15,000 titles available for streaming to library card holders. 

And the winners are: 
• 9/8 - The Goonies (PG, 1985) 
• 9/15 - Grease (PG 1978) 
• 9/22 - Moana (PG, 2016)

• 10/6 - Wall E (G – 2008) celebrating the BIG READ

The series will run for six Friday nights, from September 8 through October 13. Movies begin at dusk, and well-behaved dogs are welcome. Moviegoers should bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.
