NORTH BLENHEIM—The New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) admission-free visitors center at the Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Power Project will play host to a series of holiday movies on Saturday, Dec. 15, beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing throughout the day.

The program, in the visitors center theater, will feature traditional holiday favorites such as “Santa’s Surprise,” “The Candlemaker,” “Toys Will Be Toys” and others. Popcorn will be available.

Moviegoers can also enjoy the more than 15 evergreens decorated in a variety of holiday themes at the fifth annual Festival of Trees, which continues at the visitors center through Jan. 2 of next year. NYPA staff members will also be available to distribute information on energy savings tips for the holiday season.

The NYPA visitors center is housed in a refurbished 19th-century dairy barn and features displays and interactive exhibits on such subjects as electricity production, operation of the Blenheim-Gilboa project and energy efficiency. The center will be open daily throughout the holiday season from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., except for Dec. 24, 25, 31 and Jan. 1.
