FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MASSENA— The New York Power Authority (NYPA) will continue its free “Friday Matinees” in November with showings of contemporary movies at the admission-free Frank S. McCullough, Jr. Hawkins Point Visitors Center and Boat Launch in Massena.

During November, 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 November schedule is: 

Nov. 2: “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” (2011). British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than its advertisements, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways.

Nov. 9: “Crazy Stupid Love” (2011). A middle-aged husband's life changes dramatically when his wife asks him for a divorce. He seeks to rediscover his manhood with the help of a newfound friend, Jacob, learning to pick up girls at bars.

Nov. 16: “Tower Heist” (2011). When a group of hard-working guys find out they've fallen victim to a wealthy business man's Ponzi scheme, they conspire to rob his high-rise residence.

Nov. 30: “Snow White and the Huntsman,” (2012). In a twist to the fairy tale, the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.

At this time of year, the visitors center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The visitors center will be closed Nov. 22 and Nov. 23 in observance of Thanksgiving.

Besides enjoying the 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 the St. Lawrence-FDR project. Visitors are also sure to enjoy the panoramic views of the power dam. For further information, please call the visitors center at (315) 764-0226 or go to www.nypa.gov
