Now Showing at the Downtown IMAX: Polar Express 3D

…the best 3-D viewing experience I’ve ever had. If there’s a choice, try the IMAX version. Or go twice. This is a movie that doesn’t wear out.” -Roger Ebert

Rog is right. We went last night to the Esquire IMAX and were impressed. There are parts of Polar Express 3D where you think you can grab the floating yellow ticket. And yeah, I was sober. Other exciting moments were the roller coaster train rides…and of course the train coming at you out of the screen. Whew, wotta ride!

The kids had a lot of fun and so did I. IMAX, though, is not cheap. 15 bucks a person (adult) and 13 bucks a kid…it’s not the Nutcracker, but it’s a refreshing, fun change. The theater was not packed on Thursday night, probably because it was a weeknight and this movie has been out for a few weeks–the 3D version, that is–oh and that’s THIS year. (I didn’t know before I started blogging on this that the 3D version has actually been out since 2004, repeating in ’05 and again this year–)

It’s definitely worth the price, though, for young and old. If you haven’t seen it yet, I heartily recommend bundling up the kids and taking them. Better yet, take the neighbor’s kids. Remember, it’s fun!
