The Polar Express

The holiday season is here, which means the MOST’s 12th annual holiday showing of The Polar Express in our domed IMAX® theater will be underway starting Friday, November 24!

The film takes viewers on a journey through the perspective of a boy questioning his belief in Santa until he takes a train ride to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. Seeing the film in the Museum’s omnitheater offers an immersive viewing experience, putting you into the action on a journey of self-discovery.

The MOST will screen The Polar Express twice per day at noon and 3:00 p.m. starting Friday, November 24 and run through January 1, 2018.

The Museum will also be offering popular and child-friendly Polar Express Pajama Parties. Parties start at 5:00 p.m. with hands-on activities, hot chocolate, a visit from Santa, and a 6:00 p.m. viewing of The Polar Express in the Bristol IMAX Omnitheater.

Pajama parties will be held on November 25 and December 2, 8, 9, 15 and 16.
