Renew (or begin) a family tradition by securing your tickets for a magical ride to the North Pole as “The Polar Express” steams back onto the giant IMAX screen for a limited holiday engagement.
Based on the 1986 Caldecott Award-winning book by Chris Van Allsburg, “The Polar Express” follows a young boy who doubts the existence of Santa Claus and gets taken on a magical Christmas Eve trip to the North Pole. In this film, which was digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX format, Hanks plays five roles, including the train's officious conductor, a ghostly hobo and Santa Claus.
