It's a Holiday Faceoff in SANTA VS. THE SNOWMAN!
Santa vs the Snowman
Tradition is turned on its head when an innocent, lovable Snowman discovers Santa's Village and reaches in the workshop window to pick up a shiny new flute. In an all-out, riotous battle for Christmas, the Snowman and his minions square off against Santa and his elf army for the rights to the worldwide gift delivery franchise of the jolly man in red. The off-the-wall humor of Steve Oedekerk, (Academy Award®-nominated for Jimmy Neutron) combines with Academy Award®-winning IMAX technology for a film as funny as it is visually stunning. Voiced by Jonathan Winters, Ben Stein and Victoria Jackson; its lively animation, witty dialogue and visual puns delight audiences of all ages. Don't wind up on the "naughty" list - bring your family to see SANTA VS. THE SNOWMAN! Rated G. More>>

Birthday Girl
Ask happy mom Stephanie Andrews - "My daughter and her friends (and their parents) had an amazing time. The princess astronaut space theme was her perfect 6 year old birthday party - the talk of her school. Space cadet workshop was so much fun; as was the IMAX film, the exhibits, the dancing and the workshop.  We had a ton of delicious food! A wonderful job in planning and fantastic execution; the hosts were phenomenal!  We enjoyed every minute of it ... Thank you again!"
