Who doesn't love a Christmas movie? And what is better than a Christmas movie? A free Christmas classic movie that the whole family will love in an amazing, historic El Paso venue. The International Museum of Art is the place to be on Saturday afternoons all year because they show free movies, and this time of the year, they show Christmas classics for free.

Saturday, December 15, they are going to screen the classic Tom Hanks Christmas movie, The Polar Express. The Polar Express is about a little boy who climbs on board a magical train on Christmas Eve that takes him to the North Pole where he learns about friendship, bravery, and the spirit of Christmas. If you haven't seen this movie with your beasties, this is the perfect way to introduce them to this amazing movie. It a sweet story, but there are thrills and suspenseful moments, and it is the kind of movie we grew up with. It doesn't dumb things down for the kiddos and it makes them keep up with a fast-paced story. It's the kind of movie that you can see over and over again and find something new each time.

The best part about watching The Polar Express is watching at the Museum. The Trost-designed venue is a real diamond on the desert, and once you've seen the movie, make sure you walk around and take in the exhibits and just let your kids marvel at the beautiful the historic home. Concessions are available before the movie, and they are about a dollar a piece, so this is really a budget-friendly excursion for the whole family.
