Sunset Cinema: Movies in the Park Series Announced

Knox County is hosting its second annual Sunset Cinema: Movies in the Park Series. The Sunset Cinema is a perfect way to spend a night in the great outdoors, with popular movies showing throughout the summer months.

“Folks from here and across the region love these events, and it’s a good chance to have a picnic, and check out our parks, which are some of the nicest places in the area,” Mayor Jacobs said.

Activities kick off at 8 p.m. with screenings starting at dusk on various Fridays throughout May, June, July, and August. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets, lawn chairs, and food. However, no alcohol is allowed.

The dates and locations for summer 2024 are:

  • June 7: Elemental at Carl Cowan Park
  • June 21: Migration at French Memorial Park
  • July 19: Barbie at Powell Station Park
  • Aug. 2: The Little Mermaid at Tank Strickland Park

If any movie must be canceled because of the weather, the county will post a notification to the Parks and Recreation Facebook page and the Park’s Twitter page.
