The Polar Express
Based on the children's book by Chris Van Allsburg, this inspiring adventure tells the story of a young boy who doubts the existence of Santa Claus. Late one Christmas Eve night, he lies awake listening to hear the sounds of Santa's sleigh and reindeer. Instead, he hears the chugging of a steam locomotive and whistle, just outside his bedroom window. The train's conductor invites the boy on board for an extraordinary ride to the North Pole. It is a journey of self-discovery for the boy, showing him that the wonder of life never fades for those who choose to believe.
