Movies in the Square 2009

Movies in the Square, KingstonWith the terrible Winter and cool Spring we’ve had, I think most of us are really looking forward to the hazy days of Summer.  Whether you plan on hitting up the local golf course, taking in a tour at Ft. Henry, or simply hopping on your bike, there no shortage of things to see and do around the Limestone City.  One of our new favorite evening past times is hitting up the local drive-in, which we’ve already done on two separate occasions since it opened last month.  That said, in case your not a fan of late nights, or new blockbuster franchises, perhaps you’d prefer a night of Movies in the Square.

The City of Kingston has just announced their latest schedule of upcoming movies in our picturesque Market Square.  Similar to last year’s lineup, there are a good selection of family friendly flicks, blockbusters, and classics that span the past few decades.  A complete rundown is as follows:

  • 25 June:  Hook
  • 2 July:  The Goonies
  • 16 July:  Mrs Doubtfire
  • 23 July:  Singin’ in the Rain
  • 30 July:  My Girl
  • 6 August:  Rocky
  • 13 August:  Contact
  • 20 August:  Homeward Bound – The Incredible Journey
  • 27 August:  The Aristocats
  • 3 September:  A League of Their Own

As I’ve said, it’s a pretty good mix, however I’d love it if the City involved the public in the film selection process.  In the future, they should open up a few dates, take nominations, and poll people online.  Off the top of my head, a few of my nominations would be:  Dazed and Confused, Labyrinth, Die Hard, and Indiana Jones.    What sort of movies would you like to see in the Square? Are any of the above mentioned features going to coax you out to see a (free) movie this Summer?

Thanks to for the delicious, buttery popcorn photo.
