TUESDAY THE POLAR EXPRESS
7.30PM, GO! ★★★
An emotionally arresting and visually striking animated adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg’s award-winning 1985 picture book. A small boy having trouble believing in Santa Claus is invited on a train ride to the North Pole to experience the true spirit of Christmas. The vivid depiction of a world mapped out in every child’s imagination is truly a wonder to behold. Stars Tom Hanks. Note for train spotters: the locomotive depicted in the movie is a Pere Marquette 1225. If you are ever in the US town of Owosso, Missouri, you can ride the same train that inspired the illustrations.
