Philomena is scheduled to be released on DVD on April 15, and if so, will be playing the following day, Wednesday, April 16 at 1:15 p.m., at the Petoskey Friendship Center. The movie is based on a true story of one mother's search for her lost son, who was taken away from her decades ago after she became pregnant out of wedlock and was forced to live in a convent. Then on Wednesday, April 30 at 1:00 p.m., the Petoskey Center will be playing Nebraska, about a cantankerous father who thinks he struck it rich in a sweepstakes and wranglers his son into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Set in black and white, the movie tells stories of family life in the heartland of America. Movies and popcorn is free to seniors age 60 and older and their spouses.
Join us at the Petoskey and Pellston Centers on Monday, April 21 at 11:30 a.m. for an Easter Celebration featuring a delicious holiday dinner with baked ham, sweet potatoes, green beans almandine, salad bar, assorted rolls, and Easter cake.
