MASSENA - The New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) Friday Matinee series in August will feature four contemporary romantic comedies with a unique take on dating and relationships.
The movies are part of a year-round film series at NYPA’s admission-free Frank S. McCullough, Jr. Hawkins Point Visitors Center auditorium.  The series runs every Friday at 1:30 p.m., and features a variety of family-friendly contemporary and classic movies.  Popcorn is on the house!

The August schedule is:

Aug. 6: “He’s Just Not That Into You,” (2009). Set in Baltimore, interconnecting story arcs deal with the challenges of reading or misreading human behavior.

Aug. 13: “Date Night,” (2010). In New York City, a case of mistaken identity turns a bored married couple's attempt at a glamorous and romantic evening into something thrilling and dangerous.

Aug. 20: “The Proposal,” (2009). A pushy boss forces her young assistant to marry her in order to keep her Visa status in the U.S. and avoid deportation to Canada.

Aug. 27: “The Back-Up Plan” (2010). A romantic comedy centered on a woman who conceives twins through artificial insemination, only to meet the man of her dreams on the very same day.

In addition to the year-round “Friday Matinee” festival, be sure to mark your calendars for our “Beat The Heat” summer movie series, featuring back-to-back family films every Tuesday at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. during the month of August.

Visitors can also 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 will also be sure to enjoy the panoramic views of the power dam.

During the summer season, the visitors center is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.
