Movie Matinee at the Kingsport Public Library

May 18 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Kingsport Public Library’s summer movie series has returned this year, offering families a free Saturday afternoon matinee of high adventure, animated fun and a free bag of popcorn.

The free movies will be shown from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the first-floor auditorium of the library on May 18, June 15 and July 6, so be sure to mark your calendars.

The summer movie series kicks off May 18th with an archaeological adventure in the desert, when an American serving in the French Foreign Legion accidentally awakens a mummy, who then begins the search for his long-lost love. This 1999 film stars Brendan Frazier, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah and Arnold Vosloo.

On June 15, the library will be showing a 2023 animated movie about a young girl who makes a wish upon a star and gets more than she bargained for when a trouble-making star comes down from the sky to join her. The film stars the voice-talents of Ariana DeBose, Chris Pine, Alan Tudyk and Angelique Cabral.

Finally, on July 6 the library returns to the world of archaeology with the classic 1981 film about an adventuring professor in a race against Nazis to find the Ark of the Covenant. The film stars Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Paul Freeman and John Rhys-Davies.

A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements. Additionally, social or organizational gatherings held on city owned property to which the public at large is invited will be published on this calendar.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.

Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property. In order to achieve the city’s goals only those events described herein will be published on the This is Kingsport event calendar which will be curated by city staff.
