The Polar Express 3D is returning to the Giant Screen Theater inside the National Infantry Museum every weekend beginning December 9, 2017! This family favorite event is brought to you by our title sponsor, Dr. Mark Lawrence! Our sensory sensitive showing will be on December 16th at 2pm.

Cuddle up in your favorite pajamas and enjoy this family friendly tradition that is sure to put you in the holiday spirit. The 2004 film is based on the children’s book of the same title by Chris Van Allsburg. 

This year, every child wearing pajamas will receive a free hot chocolate on the museum! The train’s conductor will make appearances at many of the screening to punch exclusive golden tickets prior to the film.
