Bays Mountain Park: Cinema Under the Stars

August 13 @ 8:45 pm - 10:00 pm

Bays Mountain Park to Host ‘Cinema Under the Stars’
Park will screen ‘Friday the 13th’ in August, tickets on sale now

Spend Friday the 13th at Bays Mountain Park… if you dare! Knoxville TVA Credit Union presents Cinema Under the Stars: Friday the 13th (1980, R) on Friday, August 13.

Come out and watch this classic slasher flick in the Bays Mountain Amphitheatre, surrounded by the spooky woods. Think you can survive the night? Pick up an “I Survived Friday the 13th at BMP” t-shirt to commemorate the evening!

Tickets are available via Eventbrite here and are $10 per person. Please note that children under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian in order to attend an R-rated movie.

The amphitheatre is bench seating, and you are welcome to bring stadium chairs for your comfort. Bag/lawn chairs and outside food are not allowed at Cinema Under the Stars.

Entrance to the outdoor amphitheatre opens at 7:45 p.m. The movie will begin around 8:45 p.m. Run time is 1 hour 35 minutes.

“I Survived Friday the 13th” t-shirts are $22 each and are available to bundle with your ticket purchase on Eventbrite. BMP will only have limited quantities of shirts at the event, and they’ll be $28 each then—so make sure you grab yours at checkout!

About the City of Kingsport

Founded in 1917, the City of Kingsport (pop. 53,000) is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the eastern U.S. The city is widely known as a planned community, designed by renowned city planner John Nolen and wrapping around the foot of Bays Mountain – a 3,500-acre park, nature preserve, planetarium and observatory. Kingsport is recognized as an International Safe Community by the National Safety Council, a Healthier Tennessee community, and won the 2009 Harvard Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiatives. While many city names are duplicated throughout the U.S., there’s only one Kingsport – a fact that invokes community pride, known locally as the “Kingsport Spirit.”
