Summer Family Movie Nights At Knox County Parks


Enjoy a movie under the stars this summer courtesy of Knox County Parks & Recreation! The popular Sunset Cinema has returned with even more family-friendly movies.

Once again, residents were asked to vote on their movie picks. The winners were “Shrek,” “Elemental,” “Migration,” “Barbie,” and “The Little Mermaid (2023).” Sunset Cinema is more than just a movie. Activities will begin at 7:00pm and then the movies will begin at dusk. Best of all, Sunset Cinema is absolutely free. It’s held in parks across Knox County, so you can find one near you. Knoxville Moms has put together the complete list below. So, grab a blanket, lawn chairs and, of course, snacks! We’ll see you at Sunset Cinema this summer!

I’m a former TV news producer turned stay-at-home mom to my daughter Madeline and son Bennett. While I may stay at home, Madeline, Bennett and I are always on the go exploring Knoxville and making new friends. I'm a coffee addict, book lover, fashion-phile, occasional cook and bargain hunter. My guilty pleasures include Pinterest and bad reality TV. I believe a sense of humor is an essential survival skill. And--lucky me--my funny husband Andy always keeps me laughing. Follow me on Knoxville Moms as I chronicle this challenging and rewarding adventure we call motherhood!
