The Bronx Zoo is presenting “The Polar Express” not in 2D, not in 3D, but in incredible 4D. Now through Jan. 2, don’t just see the train, feel the train.

The zoo’s 4D theater brings movies to life in a cutting-edge cinema simulator. Seats shake, fans blow and fake snow falls as conditions inside the theater alter to match events on the screen.

The running time for the film — originally at 100 minutes — has been cut to just 19, retaining only the juiciest scenes. Fans of the film might not appreciate the omissions, but considering the film’s North Pole setting and the theater’s penchant for mimicking weather conditions, fans of warmth should be grateful.

“Polar Express 4D” at the Bronx Zoo 4D theater [2300 Southern Blvd. between Southern Boulevard and Boston Road in Riverdale, (718) 367-1010] now through Jan. 2, Monday through Sunday, with showings every 8 minutes from 10 am to 4:30 pm. Tickets are $5 for members and $7 for non-members. For more info, visit www.bronxzoo.com.

Reach reporter Colin MIxson at cmixson@cnglocal.com or by calling (718) 260-4514.
