The Polar Express screening is a fundraiser for the Eumundi State School P & C Association. Gates open at 6pm, with the screening starting around 7pm. Moviegoers are advised to bring something to sit on a picnic rug, chair, beanbag, or even a couch!
We'll have a candy bar open from 6pm with choc-top ice-creams, popcorn and all the necessary movie munchies, Steve says. Eumundi School P & C will be cooking up a storm with a sausage sizzle and bbq from 6pm too, he says. As a opening night special, the cost is only $5 per person, and free for children under 3 years of age, says Steve.
The price also includes a glow light for everyone to add that extra Christmas sparkle. Come along for what will be a great night guaranteed to get you in the spirit of Christmas! A bit about the movie A sure-fire fabulous family Christmas flick, The Polar Express is an inspiring adventure based on the children's book by Chris Van Allsburg.
When a doubting young boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe. Directed by Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away), the film stars Tom Hanks in five distinct roles, including the role of Santa Claus.
It features incredible computer-animation and cutting-edge filmmaking techniques and is sure to appeal to grown ups as well as kids. The Flicks in the Sticks project acknowledges the generous support of Queensland Government Q150 celebrations, The Sunshine Coast Regional Council, and the Eumundi and District Historical Association.
