What is Movies on Market Square?
A free outdoor movie series brought to you by the Knox County Public Library. All you have to do is pack a blanket or a lawn chair and join hundreds of others under the stars for a night in front of the silver screen.
Learn more about each movie.
Each year, the lineup is decided by a community-wide vote. We strive to pick movies that are appropriate for a broad range of ages, but we recommend you read movie reviews to decide if a film is right for your family. Check out last year's lineup:
