KINGSPORT — The start of the new school year is just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean summer fun is over. Come out to the Kingsport Aquatic Center Saturday and enjoy a “super” movie poolside with your friends and family.

As in previous years, the Aquatic Center is hosting a back-to-school movie night on Saturday. This year’s feature will be “Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse.” The animated blockbuster was released in theaters last December and grossed more than $375 million worldwide.

It currently holds a 97 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Gates open at 7:30 p.m. and the movie will start around 8:40 p.m. Runtime is 117 minutes. The movie is open to the public. Tickets will be $3 per person and can be purchased at the outdoor gate. KAC and YMCA members get in for free.

The outdoor pools will remain open during the showing of the movie, and fresh popcorn, candy bars and drinks will be available for purchase. You can bring your own lawn chairs and blankets to sit on during the show.


Back-to-school hours at the Aquatic Center will start Aug. 5. The indoor hours will remain the same, but the outdoor water park hours will be altered. Half-price admission will be offered Monday – Friday after 4 p.m.
