All aboard! IMAX Theatre Arizona Mills is taking moviegoers to the North Pole with two special holiday movies.

Beginning Thanksgiving Day through Dec. 31, IMAX Theatre Arizona Mills will offer regular showings of the classic The Polar Express: An IMAX 3D Experience and Santa vs. the Snowman 3D on the theater’s larger-than-life screen.

Based on the children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg, Polar Express 3D is directed by Oscar-winner Robert Zemeckis and stars two-time Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks.

It tells the tale of a doubting young boy who takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole that shows him the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.

“It’s become quite a holiday tradition for a lot of families and individuals,” said Charlene James, theater director for IMAX in Tempe. “It may be out on DVD but there’s nothing like it watching it on the IMAX screen in 3D.”

A Polar Express concession package featuring a cookie, chocolate milk and a bell will be available at the concession stand for $4.50. Guests who wear pajamas to the film will receive a coupon good for 50 cents off the Polar Express concession package.

James said in previous years, she’s seen entire families of 20 or 30 people show up in pajamas for the show.

Prices for Polar Express 3D are $14.50 for adults, $12.50 for seniors and $11.50 for children.

Also opening on Thanksgiving Day is Santa vs. the Snowman 3D – the first-ever IMAX animated holiday feature. The cost for Santa vs. the Snowman is $9.75 for adults, $8.75 for seniors and $7.75 for children. Or, with a paid ticket to Polar Express 3D, guests can purchase a ticket to Santa vs. the Snowman for $5 per person.

For movie showtimes or information, call (480) 897-IMAX or visit www.imax.com/tempe.
