During September, NYPA will show a selection of movies on Fridays at 1:30 p.m. in the visitors center auditorium. Free popcorn will be provided.
The September Movie Schedule:
Sept. 2: “Jane Eyre” (2011). Driven from her post at Thornfield House by her love for her brooding employer and his secret past, young governess Jane Eyre reflects on her youth and the events that led her to the misty moors in this artful adaptation of Charlotte Brontë's novel.
Sept. 9: “Grown Ups” (2010). After their high school basketball coach passes away, five good friends and former teammates reunite for a Fourth of July holiday weekend
Sept. 16: “Runaway Bride” (1999). A reporter is assigned to write a story about a woman who has left a string of fiancés at the altar.
Sept. 23: “The Conspirator” (2010). Mary Surratt is the lone female charged as a co-conspirator in the assassination trial of Abraham Lincoln. As the whole nation turns against her, she is forced to rely on her reluctant lawyer to uncover the truth and save her life
Sept. 30: “Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines” (1965). It's hijinks galore when an international air race sponsored by a newspaper publisher is undermined by sabotage.
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 electricity generation 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 5 p.m.
