The Polar Express is on track for the State Museum | Arts & Culture
Do you still remember the magic of believing—really believing—in Santa Claus? And do you remember when you started to doubt, just a little, that Santa really existed?
Lovers, old and young, of Chris Van Allsburg’s modern classic, “The Polar Express” and the delightful movie made of it featuring Tom Hanks will once again experience really believing in all the magic of Christmas as the South Carolina State Museum presents a Polar Express Night on Dec. 21 from 4-7 p.m.
As part of its Winter Fest program series, the museum will present a big screen showing of the movie in its museum’s auditorium, enhanced with free popcorn.
Guests are encouraged to attend in their comfy p.j.’s and slippers. “After the movie, all will enjoy a cozy hot chocolate bar with lots of festive fixings and cookies,” said Director of Operations Meika Samuel. Also on hand will be a very special visitor from the North Pole!
“This is one of those wonderful movies that makes you feel that anything can happen if you just believe,” said Samuel.
“The first year we did Winter Fest we presented a screening of this classic holiday movie,” continued Samuel. “We’re excited to bring ‘The Polar Express’ back to the State Museum again this year for more children – and grownups - to enjoy.”
Ticket prices are $7 general public, $5 members of the State Museum. Advance tickets can be purchased on the museum’s Web site.
