MASSENA—The New York Power Authority (NYPA) will continue its free “Friday Matinees” in June with showings of four classic movies at the admission-free, 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 3: “The Way We Were,” (1973).  Two desperate people have a wonderful romance, but their political views and convictions drive them apart.

June 10: “Somewhere in Time,” (1980). A Chicago playwright uses self-hypnosis to find the actress whose vintage portrait hangs in a grand hotel.

June 17: “The Four Seasons,” (1981). Three middle-aged wealthy couples share mid-life, marital, parental, and other crises while on vacation together.

June 24: “Driving Miss Daisy,” (1989). Winner of the Academy Award for best picture of 1989, this drama chronicles the 25-year friendship between a stubborn, aging Southern widow and her loyal chauffeur.

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.
