On September 9, 2011, Knox County Public Library's popular outdoor movie series will return to Market Square for the eighth year of free family fun in front of the silver screen-and this time it's gone to the dogs! Knox County Public Library is pleased to partner with PetSafe and Petsafe Village to present the most dog friendly movie series ever. Pre-show activities will feature pet tips and advice, as well as an array of four-legged festivities.
Voting for this year's lineup will run from August 18-24 on metropulse.com and knoxlib.org. The winning line up will be announced on September 1. The ballot includes titles ranging from action and adventure, to animated family favorites, to new classics from the 70s, 80s and 90s. As always, all movies are family friendly offerings, rated PG-13 or less.
The series will run for six Friday nights, from September 9 through October 14. The movies begin at dusk (around 8:30 p.m.). Each year, the Library puts on Movies on Market Square to highlight its vast collection of film and music. Audiovisual items now account for just over half of all circulating items at Lawson McGhee Library. Last year, over 454,000 DVDs, CDs, and audio books were checked out throughout the county.
Movies on Market Square is made possible through the generous support of PetSafe, Comcast, The Tomato Head, Downtown Knoxville, City People, Metro Pulse, WBIR, B97.5 and Lunar Cinemas.
