The Polar Express: The IMAX® Experience


Take the Journey in IMAX - for free!

The Polar Express will delight kids and adults this holiday season when it arrives at the Grand Canyon IMAX Theater on Friday December 20th at 6:30 pm for 1 night only!

Tom Hanks and director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away) reunite for “Polar Express”, an inspiring adventure based on the beloved children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg. The movie revolves around Billy (Hayden McFarland), who longs to believe in Santa Claus but finds it quite difficult to do so, with his family’s dogged insistence that all of it, from the North Pole, to the elves, to the man himself, it all just a myth. This all changes on Christmas Eve, when a mysterious train visits Billy in the middle of the night, promising to take him and a group of other lucky children to the North Pole for a visit with Santa. The train’s conductor (Tom Hanks) along with other passengers help turn Billy’s crisis in faith into a journey of self-discovery.

The giant 6-story high screen, combined with the IMAX projection technology and remarkable sound system, will provide Grand Canyon IMAX Theater moviegoers with an immersive, extraordinary cinematic experience.

The Grand Canyon IMAX Theater, located within the Grand Canyon Visitor Center, is only one mile from the Grand Canyon National Park South Rim Entrance.
