The Polar Express - Free!
From November 23, 2013 until November 23, 2013
Saturday, November 23 at 4 PM
Treat the whole family to a special FREE movie before Downtown Norfolk’s Grand Illumination Parade! "The Polar Express" stars Tom Hanks and became a runaway hit upon its 2004 release.
Based on children's author Chris Van Allsburg's modern holiday classic of the same name, The Polar Express revolves around Billy (Hayden McFarland), who longs to believe in Santa Claus but finds it quite difficult to do so, what with his family's dogged insistence that all of it, from the North Pole, to the elves, to the man himself, is 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 the other passengers help turn Billy's crisis in faith into a journey of self-discovery. A long-time fan of Van Allsburg's book, Hanks also helped produce the film. 100 minutes. Rated G.
After the movie, grab a bite and then watch Downtown Norfolk's spectacular Grand Illumination Parade!
