GREAT FALLS — The Mansfield Theater in downtown Great Falls will host a free screening of "The Polar Express" on Saturday, December 21st.

Doors will open at 1:30 pm, and the movie will begin at 2 pm.

Everyone is welcome to attend; seating will be on a first-come basis until all seats are full.

The movie, rated G (family-friendly), was released in November 2004, and grossed more than $311 million dollars.

The movie website provides this synopsis: "Late on Christmas Eve, after the town has gone to sleep, a boy boards the mysterious train that waits for him--The Polar Express. When the boy arrives at the North Pole, Santa Claus offers him any gift he desires. The boy asks only for a bell from the harness of Santa's reindeer. But on the way home, the bell is lost. Christmas morning, the boy finds the bell under the Christmas tree, and when he shakes it, the bell makes the most beautiful sound he's ever heard. His mother admires the bell, but she laments that it is broken ... for, you see, only a true believer can hear the sound of the bell."
