That magical train headed for the North Pole is stopping at the MOST! The annual holiday tradition, The Polar Express, is back beginning Friday, Nov. 23 and just in time for the season. This holiday tradition will be around for a limited time, so make sure grab your ticket today!
On Christmas Eve, a doubting young boy lies awake in bed, waiting for a sound he never expected to hear: the sound Santa's sleigh bells. Suddenly, he is ripped from his bed by a thunderous noise. Outside his window, he sees the most incredible sight that sparks an amazing journey where he will meet a vagabond, a conductor, new friends and the man in the big red suit! The Polar Express is an inspirational story of a boy who embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.
An exciting adventure for the whole family, The Polar Express combines classic storytelling with innovative technology. The classic film is brought to life with the use of "Performance Capture," a unique technology that captures genuine human emotion and natural expressions, bringing characters to vividly to life on the big screen. The 66' diameter domed screen in the Bristol IMAX Omnitheater will envelop the audience, essentially taking you on along on the trip. Viewers will find themselves grasping at the falling snowflakes and ducking as the train comes to a screeching halt in their laps.
As the conductor says "It doesn't matter where the train is going. What matters is deciding to get on." Enjoy the holiday spirit and join the ride toward the North Pole. In the cold winter, The Polar Express will warm your heart and enliven the joy of the season.
