The 14th year of the Knox County Public Library's Movies on Market Square is set to start Sept. 8 with The Goonies.
The free movie series runs on six consecutive Friday nights in Market Square in downtown Knoxville. You are invited to bring your lawn chairs and blankets and settle in with the family and your well-behaved dog to enjoy the show!
Based on a community-wide vote, this year's lineup features a lonely robot, a chief-in-training, super heroes, and some star-crossed singing summer sweethearts.
