FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MASSENA—Three movies will be shown Wednesday (August 16) at the
admission-free Hawkins Point Visitors Center at the New York Power
Authority’s St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project.
The program, the fourth in the Visitors Center’s
series of “Beat the Heat Summer Movie Days” that will continue
through the summer, begins at 10 a.m. with “The Chronicles of Narnia.”
“RV” will follow at 1 p.m. and “Chicken Little” at 3 p.m. All
showings will be in the Visitors Center theater.
“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and
the Wardrobe,” tells the story of the four Pevensie children, Lucy,
Peter, Edmund, and Susan, and their adventures in the mystical world
of Narnia. Sent to the British countryside for their own safety
during the blitz of World War II, they discover an entryway into a
mystical world through an old wardrobe.
“RV, starring Robin Williams, is a comedy that
centers on a dysfunctional family that takes a two-week road trip to
the Colorado Rockies. “Chicken Little,” – a computer-animation –
tells the tale of a band of misfit friends who go about saving the
world when aliens start an invasion.
Besides enjoying the movies, visitors can sample
the array of hands-on exhibits at the $5 million Hawkins Point
facility, which presents information on such themes as waterpower
and the St. Lawrence-FDR project, and the basics and uses of
electricity. Another highlight is the panoramic view of the
project’s power dam from Hawkins Point.
The visitors center is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
