Holiday Dinner and a Movie: ‘Polar Express’
If you are looking for a warm place to be with the family or just a date night, the Avalon Theater is screening the 'The Polar Express' for this week's Dinner and a Movie.
Every Tuesday night, the Avalon Theater host 'Dinner and a Movie' night. If you bring in a receipt from your dinner at a downtown eatery, two people get into the movies for free. If you just want to catch the movie, tickets are six dollars per person.
Tuesday, December 20, the Avalon is hosting the great Steve Speilberg Christmas movie 'The Polar Express' at 7:30 p.m.
The Movie is based on a children's book by Chris Van Allsburg:
Directed by Robert Zemeckis and based on children's author Chris Van Allsburg's modern holiday classic of the same name, The Polar Express revolves around Billy, 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, however, 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 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.
