Polar Express Movie Screening

Friday, November 3, 2023

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 19 2:00 p.m.

Join the City of Aiken Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism for an evening of magic and holiday wonder with a showing of the film “The Polar Express”!

A classic film starring Tom Hanks as the Conductor, “The Polar Express” is a tale about a young boy who travels to the North Pole by enchanted train. On his journey, he learns to believe in the magic of Christmas. As the train’s conductor says: “One thing about trains: it doesn’t matter where they’re going. What matters is deciding to get on.” So, hop aboard for a delightful, fun-filled evening!

Our evening showing is scheduled for Saturday, November 18 at 6:00 p.m. A matinee program will be held Sunday, November 19 at 2:00 p.m. Screenings will be held at the Amentum Center For The Performing Arts, 126 Newberry St. SW. Doors will open half an hour before show time.

Tickets are $5 per person. Space is limited, so please make reservations early! All attendees are required to have a ticket. All children must be accompanied by an adult, with a limit of two adults per child. Complimentary popcorn will be available.
