The Polar Express

Santa's Souped-Up Sleigh


Every season, watching this on TV, I try to reconcile the flat thing on the screen in the box with the movie I saw in the theater, which at one point almost convinced me that the auditorium was filling with snow. This benefit screening sponsored by Crye-Leike won’t be in 3-D, alas, but it makes up in goodwill what it loses in spectacle: All proceeds benefit Camp Hope, Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s camp for children who have suffered severe burns. Dinner and a silent auction precede the movie; tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for those under 18. Maybe I’m crazy, but I could swear I hear a bell ringing...
