Cloverdale's historic movie house presents a special Friday afternoon screening of Polar Express, a modern Christmas classic.

It's the Clova Cinema's annual Christmas kick off. Admission is just $4 for the Dec. 17 presentation, which starts at 4 p.m.

Proceeds from admission to this special screening will go to the Surrey Food Bank. Donations of non-perishable food items and extra cash are also welcome.

Polar Express is directed by Robert Zemeckis and features the voice of Tom Hanks.

It's an animated story of how a boy's faith in the wonder of life is rewarded one Christmas Eve when a magical steam train pulls up outside his house and takes him on a mysterious, thrilling journey to the North Pole – home of Santa's Workshop.

It's adapted from an illustrated children's book by Chris Van Allsburg and is breathtaking on the big screen, like a storybook brought to life.

It's rated PG and may frighten young children.
