The Marietta holiday tradition of The Polar Express pajama matinee continues! The young and young-at-heart are encouraged to come dressed in Christmas pajamas and enjoy the show. And keep your eyes out for a very special guest!
In this 2004 film from director Robert Zemeckis, a young boy is lying awake late on Christmas Eve, waiting for the sound of sleigh bells ringing from Santa’s sleigh. At five minutes to midnight, his room begins to shake, and he hears a thunderous sound outside his window. The boy jumps from his bed and sees a train in the middle of his street. The boy grabs his robe and rushes out the front door to look at the train. The train’s conductor asks the boy if he is getting aboard. The boy asks, “Where are you going?” “To the North Pole, of course. This is the Polar Express!” replies the conductor, one of Tom Hanks’s six roles in the movie. At the last minute, the boy jumps on the train and finds other young boys and girls going to the North Pole, and their holiday adventure begins.
