FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MASSENA—As the wind kicks up and the days get shorter, come in from the cold and warm up with a cinematic break from the season at the New York Power Authority (NYPA) “Friday Matinees” at the admission-free Frank S. McCullough, Jr. Hawkins Point Visitors Center and Boat Launch in Massena.
The popular film series continues in November with showings of contemporary family favorites every Friday at 1:30 p.m. in the visitors center auditorium. The movies are free and the popcorn in on the house.
The November movie schedule is:
Nov. 5: “The Last Song” (2010). A drama centered on a rebellious girl who is sent to a Southern beach town for the summer to stay with her father. Through their mutual love of music, the estranged duo learns to reconnect.
Nov. 12: “Kate and Leopold” (2002). When a rip in time brings together a charming 19th century bachelor and a thoroughly 21st century woman, the potential for an old-fashioned modern romance ignites!
Nov. 19: “Serendipity” (2001). A couple reunite years after the night they first met, convinced that one day they'll end up together.
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 open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The visitors center will be closed Nov. 26 and Nov. 27, for the Thanksgiving holiday.
For further information, please call the visitors center at (315) 764-0226, ext. 302 or visit NYPA on the web at www.nypa.gov.
