Also, don’t forget to pick up your sleigh bells to take home with you once the movie is over.

You get all of this without paying a dime. The movie is free, so there is no reason to miss out on the fun. Pack up your little ones and hop aboard the magical Polar Express.

About the Film

You’ve never seen The Polar Express? This has been a holiday favorite since it came out in 2004, so you are in for quite the treat. The animated film stars Tom Hanks, and follows a young boy as he chugs along toward the North Pole while aboard the Polar Express. This movie teaches kids about friendship and bravery, and also celebrates the true spirit of Christmas. If your family needs a little holiday spirit, this movie will definitely bring it; it’s so magical that you’ll love it as much as your kids do.

Additional Planetarium Shows

The planetarium always seems to have something going on, but it really comes to life during the holiday season. Let it Snow: A Holiday Music Journey is one of the biggest holiday shows this year, featuring holiday classics from the likes of Brenda Lee, Chuck Berry, and Frank Sinatra. What really makes it a standout is the finale, when the Trans-Siberian Orchestra takes over. You can also stop by the theater to see Dinosaurs Alive! and other fun shows. If you have kids, a trip to the planetarium is a must.

A trip to Brian Harris Chevrolet in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is also a must. We don’t sing and dance, but we can help you celebrate the holidays with a new or pre-owned vehicle. Just think of how many presents you can load into a spacious new Traverse or how easily you can zip around in the Baton Rouge traffic in a Cruze. We truly have something for all styles and needs, so come by and see us today. We will help you enjoy the holiday season with a new ride.
