The Erie Canal Discovery Center has announced a new series of weekly documentary movies, "Movies & Popcorn," to be shown every Saturday this winter at 11 a.m., beginning Saturday, Dec. 15. These full-length features will include several award-winning productions from around Western New York as well as other documentaries and travelogues prepared by National Geographic and PBS.
The first film in the series is titled, "Celebrate Niagara-USA," a feature film produced by Trellis Marketing of Buffalo, which aired this summer on local broadcast stations. This fascinating video includes segments of more than a dozen local tourist and cultural attractions around Niagara County, including the Erie Canal Discovery Center and the Lockport Cave and Underground Boat Ride in Lockport.
"If you didn't get a chance to see this film on TV, this would be a good opportunity to see the show, and we'll even throw in the popcorn for your enjoyment," said Discovery Center Director Douglas Farley.
The schedule of upcoming Saturday matinees includes:
Additional new films will continue throughout the winter months. Admission to these feature films is included in Erie Canal Discovery Center general admission of $6 adults, $5 seniors and $4 students. Reservations, though not required, are encouraged, and can be made by calling 716-439-0431.
