Screening of "Hop" for Drive-In at the Midway canceled because of weather

Reservations will be required, and registration for the screenings opens on March 10 at 10 a.m. when the library announces the spring movie lineup.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The showing of Hop has been canceled due to flooding in Chilhowee Park and the expected cold weather.

Original story 

Drive-In at the Midway is returning for two screenings this spring, according to the Knox County Public Library.

It is partnering with the City of Knoxville to present Drive-In at the Midway- Spring Edition at Chilhowee Park, according to the library's website. 

The library said it has been showing outdoor movies on Market Square since 2004, and it is making changes to help families enjoy the night while keeping them safe from COVID-19.

You can watch Zootopia on Friday, March 26, and Hop on Thursday, April 1.  

Reservations are required for the event. Each vehicle may bring in the number of passengers for which it is rated--one per seatbelt. Each reserved space includes an adjacent parking space to accommodate blankets or lawn chairs. Guests will need an FM radio to receive the film’s audio from an FM transmitter. 

The entrance gate on North Beaman Street opens at 6:30 p.m. and will close once the show begins at 8 p.m.

The library said you must bring your own food and beverages, but grills and alcohol are not allowed. Restrooms are available and face masks are required to use them. Guests are also expected to follow the health department's five core actions and practice social distancing during the event.

If you plan to attend, make sure your car has a working FM radio so you can hear the movie.

You can find more information about the drive-in and reservations on the Knox County Public Library website.
