Muskogee’s Historic Roxy Theater and the Three Rivers Museum and Heritage Center are taking special care to make the fourth-annual Muskogee’s Polar Express Pajama Party both fun and covid-safe this year.

“The kids have missed so much this year so we have been working diligently to make this an event the kids and parents can attend and feel comfortable knowing we have taken every precaution,” Angie Watson-Rush, Executive Director of the Three River’s Museum, said, “We want them to come healthy and leave healthy.”

The event, which features a simulated train ride on a bus, takes the participants from the Three Rivers Museum to the Roxy Theater to watch the motion picture Polar Express, and then back to the North Pole (Three Rivers Museum) to meet Santa, while re-creating pivotal scenes from the movie.

Muskogee High School volunteers from the Alpha Adelphi sorority will be dressed as elves to help the children on and off the buses and to their seats in the theater and the lineup to take pictures with Santa at the North Pole at Muskogee’s Three River Museum and Heritage Center.

The holiday decorated three hundred and twenty seat ROXY Theater provides ample room for social distancing with a renovated sound system to transport the viewer into the movie’s reality. The motion picture, starring Tom Hanks has become a classic cult holiday movie for children.

Dates for the event are November 27, 28 and December 4th and 5th.
