Celebrate Christmas in July at the historic Gillioz Theatre with a showing of the 2004 film Polar Express. Based on the 1985 children’s book of the same name by Chris Van Allsburg, the film tells the story of a young boy who, on Christmas Eve, sees a mysterious train bound for the North Pole stop outside his window and is invited aboard by its conductor. The boy joins several other children as they embark on a journey to visit Santa Claus preparing for Christmas. The film stars Tom Hanks in multiple distinct roles, with Daryl Sabara, Nona Gaye, Jimmy Bennett and Eddie Deezen in supporting roles.
