“All aboard!” for a magical IMAX® movie adventure to Santa’s North Pole headquarters when the holiday film “The Polar Express” returns for a limited engagement to our giant six-story screen.

“The Polar Express” IMAX movie is based on the 1986 Caldecott Award-winning book by Chris Van Allsburg. The story follows a young boy who doubts the existence of Santa Claus.  On Christmas Eve, a locomotive magically arrives to take him and other doubtful children to Santa’s North Pole headquarters.

IMAX’s motto is ‘IMAX is Believing,’ which is why it’s the perfect film format for a movie that’s about believing.

Tom Hanks voices five roles, including the train’s conductor, a ghostly hobo and Santa Claus.  Robert Zemeckis directed the 2004 Warner Bros. Pictures release.
