KNOXVILLE -- Thousands of people cast their votes for Knox County Public Library's popular outdoor movie series, and the results are in! Presented by Lusid Media, this year's Movies on Market Square features the most popular titles from a decade of movies that have been shown on Market Square since the series began in 2004.

And the winners are:

All movies are rated PG-13 or less, but parents are encouraged to check out the films to make sure they are right for their family. The series will run for six Friday nights, from September 13 through October 18. Movies begin at dusk, and well behaved dogs are welcome. Moviegoers should bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.

On October 11 Joe Castillo will present Sandstory®. The Library partners with the Tennessee Association for the Education of Young Children Conference as they host Joe Castillo and Sandstory® on the stage of Movies on Market Square prior to the screening of Back to the Future. Castillo was a finalist on 2012 America's Got Talent. He creates stories in images as he draws in sand on a light table, choreographed to music.

Knox County Public Library also partners with ETTAC to create an accessible viewing experience for people of all abilities: closed captioning and Descriptive Video Service will be offered for all movies this season. DVS files will be available for download in advance from the Library's website and Facebook pages.

Each year, the Library puts on Movies on Market Square to highlight its vast collection of film and music. Last year, nearly 500,000 DVDs, CDs, and audio books were checked out throughout the county.

Movies on Market Square is made possible through the generous support of Lusid Media, Downtown Knoxville, The Trust Company, PetSafe, Knox Life Church, The Tomato Head, the City of Knoxville, KUB, Metro Pulse, WBIR, B97.5 and Lunar Cinemas.
