Our Polar Express Family Event is the perfect treat for your little ones this Christmas! Each child who attends the event is sent a golden ticket in the post, will be welcomed with a tasty hot chocolate when they arrive at the cinema, and then ushered to the Classic where the Conductor will be waiting to check their tickets. After the film, all children will have a chance to meet the man himself, Father Christmas, and receive their very own Christmas gift!
