The Polar Express
SCREENING AS PART OF OUR 2023/2024 KIDS CLUB SEASON
A young boy is at the age where he's beginning to doubt the existence of Santa Claus. However, one Christmas Eve he hears a thunderous noise outside and, on investigating, finds it's being made by a huge train - the Polar Express. A kindly conductor asks him aboard and soon he and some other children are on a rollercoaster ride north to see the big man himself. Director Robert Zemeckis honed the use of "motion capture" technology when filming The Polar Express, and the technique perfectly suits this charming, fantastical nature of a film about the magic of Christmas.
PLEASE NOTE - In order to spread a little joy and happiness we were asked if we could screen the film with Ukrainian subtitles so some Ukrainian families living locally could come along with their children. We wanted to help and do a little something for them considering the terrible plight that they have been through, so we hope you understand and that it doesn’t affect your enjoyment of the film.
