MASSENA—Movies featuring love and drama are on the schedule for the New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) “Friday Matinees” series in June at the admission-free Frank S. McCullough, Jr. Hawkins Point Visitors Center and Boat Launch at the St. Lawrence Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project.

NYPA will show a selection of movies on Fridays at 1:30 p.m. in the visitors center auditorium. Free popcorn will be available for the movie showings.

The June schedule is:

June 4: “I Hate Valentine’s Day,” (2008).  Set in Manhattan, a florist who abides by a strict five-date limit with all her suitors, finds herself wanting more with the new restaurateur in town.

June 11: “Extraordinary Measures,” (2009). A drama centered on the efforts of John and Aileen Crowley to find a researcher who might have a cure for their children’s rare genetic disorder.

 June 18: “Dear John,” (2009). A romantic drama about a soldier who falls for a conservative college student while he’s home on leave.

June 25: “When in Rome,” (2009). A young, ambitious New Yorker who is completely unlucky in love impulsively steals some coins from a reputed fountain of love, and is then aggressively pursued by a band of suitors.

Besides enjoying free 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 NYPA’s St. Lawrence-FDR Power Project. Visitors are sure to enjoy the panoramic views of the power dam.

The visitors center is now operating on its summer schedule and is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
