MASSENA—With Valentine’s Day almost here, love is in the air and on the screen this February at the New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) Friday matinee series.

The admission-free Frank S. McCullough, Jr. Hawkins Point Visitors Center and Boat Launch will show a selection of romantic movies on Fridays at 1:30 p.m. in the visitors center auditorium. Bring your sweetheart and NYPA will provide the popcorn.
The February schedule is:

Feb. 5: “500 Days of Summer,” (2009). In this quirky romantic comedy about love and fate, a young greeting card writer is hopelessly searching for the girl of his dreams when he meets a new co-worker who may just be “the one.”

Feb. 12: “Love Happens,” (2009). When self-help author Dr. Burke Ryan arrives in Seattle to teach a sold-out seminar, he unexpectedly meets florist Eloise Chandler, the one person who might be able to help him help himself.

Feb. 19: NYPA will be sponsoring free family films at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to coincide with the winter break for students.  The schedule will be announced shortly.

Feb. 26: “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” (2009). A Chicago librarian has a genetic disorder that causes him to travel in time randomly. Though he often disappears for long periods of time, he tries to build a romantic relationship with Clare Abshire, an artist.

The visitors center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. It will be closed on Monday, February 15, in honor of President’s Day.

Besides enjoying the movies, visitors can sample the array of hands-on exhibits at the Hawkins Point facility, which presents information on such subjects as water power and the St. Lawrence-FDR power project. Visitors are also sure to enjoy the panoramic views of the power dam. For further information, please call the visitors center at (315) 764-0226 ext. 302 or visit NYPA on the web at www.nypa.gov.
