MASSENA—The New York Power Authority (NYPA) will mark the Christmas break with a series of movies on Thursday, Dec. 27 and Friday, Dec. 28 at the St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project’s admission-free Hawkins Point visitors center.

On Thursday, “Shrek the Third” will be shown at 10 a.m., followed by “Underdog” at noon. On Friday, “Meet the Robinsons” will be shown at 10 a.m. and Disney’s “Ratatouille” will be featured at noon. All movies were released this year.

Along with enjoying the movies, visitors can sample the array of hands-on exhibits at the $5 million Hawkins Point facility, which presents information on such themes as water power and the St. Lawrence-FDR project, basics of electricity and uses of electricity. Another highlight is the panoramic view of the project’s power dam from Hawkins Point.
