MASSENA—The New York Power Authority will sponsor free movies every Tuesday this summer at the admission-free Frank S. McCullough, Jr. Hawkins Point Visitors Center and Boat Launch.

Four movies will be shown Tuesday, July 1, to kick off the “Beat the Heat Summer Movie Days,” that will continue throughout the summer on every Tuesday at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. in the visitors center auditorium. The program will continue until August 26.

The schedule for July 1 is: “Alvin and the Chipmunks” at 10 a.m., followed by “The Game Plan” at 1 p.m., “Enchanted” at 3 p.m. and “Bee Movie” at 5 p.m. A different array of movies will be announced each week.

Besides enjoying the movies, visitors can sample the array of hands-on exhibits at the McCullough visitors center at Hawkins Point, 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.

The visitors center is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.
