2008 Line Up for Movies on the Town

Posted: 08/27/2008
Knox County Public Library's popular outdoor movie series starts its fifth season on Friday, September 5.

Knox County Public Library is pleased to announce the line up of its 2008 outdoor movie series. Based on a public vote, the movies range from children's to adventure films, with some classic blockbusters in between. All films are PG-13 or less, but parents are encouraged to read reviews to make sure the films are good for their families.

The Library's outdoor movie series begins its fifth season on Friday, September 5. This year, the first three movies will be shown on World's Fair Park (September 5, 12,19). Then audiences will head to Market Square for the October films (October 3, 10, and 17). The fun starts at 7:30 p.m. with pre-show entertainment. The movies kick off at dusk and will end before 10 p.m. (with the exception of our double feature finale). Admission is free and open to the public.

This year, Fido is invited to join in the fun. The movies shown on World's Fair Park are FIDO FRIENDLY! Dogs with good manners are welcome. Leashes are required.

This year's movie schedule is:


September 5: Babe, The Gallant Pig, G, 1995
September 12: Jurassic Park, PG-13 1993
September 19: Sixteen Candles, PG, 1984


October 3: Napoleon Dynamite, PG, 2004
October 10: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, PG, 2001
October 17: DOUBLE FEATURE EXTRAVAGANZA! Ghostbusters, PG, 1984, and Beetlejuice, PG, 1988

The Library started this annual movie series to highlight its vast collection of film, music and audiobooks. Check out www.knoxlib.org for the weekly schedule, preshow entertainment and other details, or call 215-8767 for more information.
