The Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City will host two showings (1pm and 2:30pm) on April 20 of America’s National Parks at 100, which takes armchair travelers on a tour of national parks across the country. Reservations required: go to On April 22, you can catch the movie 2040 at 6:30pm at the Old Town Playhouse in Traverse City.
