All Aboard With Chris Van Allsburg

Teachers and elementary school students across the country will climb on board at 97

Regal Entertainment Group

movie theatres across the country for a special Big Screen Classroom event featuring a live, interactive workshop with Chris Van Allsburg, award-winning author and illustrator of 15 children’s books including The Polar Express and Jumanji.

Hosted by Regal CineMedia(SM) (RCM) entertainment services, Warner Bros. Pictures and Houghton Mifflin Company, All Aboard With Chris Van Allsburg will be simulcast to 97 Regal, United Artists and Edwards movie theatres nationwide beginning at 9:30 a.m. PT / 12:30 p.m. ET. In a virtual classroom setting made possible by Regal CineMedia’s satellite and digital video technology, Van Allsburg will share stories about his writing and inspiration, as well as answer pre-selected questions live from students in the theatres. Allsburg will also talk about how his book, The Polar Express, was transformed into the new movie The Polar Express, from Warner Bros. Pictures, starring Tom Hanks and directed by Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away), about a doubting young boy who takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. To help illustrate the discussion, students will get an exclusive preview of select segments from the film, which opens nationwide on November 10th.

In addition to the All Aboard With Chris Van Allsburg Big Screen Classroom event, the National Education Association (NEA)’s Read Across America program, Warner Bros. Pictures and Houghton Mifflin have created a special Polar Express teacher’s guide featuring classroom activity suggestions, writing exercises, and ideas for group discussions.

The All Aboard With Chris Van Allsburg Big Screen Classroom event is recommended for kids in grades 3-6, and tickets for the workshop cost $6.00 per student. Teachers and educators may order group tickets for the event by calling 1-800-792-8244 (tickets are available on a group sales basis only — no individual tickets will be sold). Additional information, including links to The Polar Express teacher’s guides, is available at
