"The Polar Express"
Tickets are available during school-group showings: at 10 a.m. Dec. 12-15, 18 and 21-22.
“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.
Because “The Polar Express” is an hour and 40 minutes long, tickets are specially priced: $11.50 for adults; $10.50 for youths (ages 13-17) & seniors (65+); and $9.50 for children (ages 3-12). Maritime Aquarium members save $1.
