On select Saturdays in September, Chattanoogans can enjoy an urban, outdoor movie theater along food trucks, beer and wine. Movies at Center Park (formerly known as Movies at the 700 Block) will once again take over 728 Market St. for free community entertainment.  

New to this year’s lineup is the addition of local bands prior to the movie screenings. 

Here is a list of the upcoming films: 

Saturday, Sept. 7,  The Sandlot – 1993 film about baseball, childhood friendship and The Beast.

Saturday, Sept. 21, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – Classic 1986 film where a high school wise guy is determined to have a day off from school, despite of what the principal thinks of that.

Saturday, Sept. 28, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - When Dr. Henry Jones Sr. suddenly goes missing while pursuing the Holy Grail, eminent archaeologist Indiana Jones must follow in his father's footsteps and stop the Nazis.

"River City Company is so excited to turn Center Park into a movie theater once again,” states Tiffanie Robinson, director of Creative Strategies for River City Company. “It’s a chance for us to bring people to City Center, show them some of the cool things that are happening here and have fun while we are doing it.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets for comfort. The bands will start playing at 7 p.m. with the feature film starting at 8:45 p.m. 

The movies are free, but attendees are asked to sign up on eventbrite:
