Watched this with my daughter over Christmas ad we both really enjoyed the 3D.
All 3D reviews should list the equipment it was viewed on.

In The 2010 3D Release does the 2D Blu Ray have looseless HD Audio and is the audio louder than the 2007 blu ray release?

Copy and pasted from the review on this site.

The Polar Express 3D powers onto Blu-ray with an impressive DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack; this is the third different primary soundtrack the film has received across its three Blu-ray releases, graduating from the Dolby Digital 5.1 presentation accompanying the film's inaugural 2D-only release and supplanting the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless mix found on the aforementioned anaglyph 3D disc. Warner's latest DTS offering is quite good in every category, but not groundbreaking or all that memorable, either. The track handles some of the lighter supportive elements very well. The jingling of sleigh bells heard off in the distance at the beginning of the movie and foreshadowing what will become a symbol for one's belief in Christmas later in the film is expertly handled; the sense of distance is impressive, and the clarity of the bells seems second-to-none. Soon thereafter, the Polar Express rumbles into the soundstage with a prodigious level of realistic bass, accompanied by the high-pitched and very well-realized screaming of the whistle. Additionally, the soundstage is wonderfully wide and spacious, noted in several scenes and particularly as doors fling open to either side of the listening area. Atop the speeding train in several scenes, listeners will faintly hear the sounds of a chilly wind and the rattling of the train as it powers along the railroad tracks. Unfortunately, neither sensation is seamless, as both fai to completely immerse the listener with a heftier surround support that might have made the scene into a classic audio demonstration segment. As it is, it's a serviceable disappointment of sound. Nevertheless, the track features nicely-spaced and crisply-delivered music -- notably heard during the full rendition of The Polar Express theme song heard in chapter 12. With excellent dialogue reproduction, The Polar Express 3D delivers a strong, but not quite complete and top-tier, sonic experience.

Just came across something at my local/area Carmike Imax theater. They have Polar Express listed for 1 week/1 showing a day in Imax 3D. I never did get to see this on the big screen ,so this would be my chance. It is listed for Dec. 9th (tomorrow) thru next Thursday ,Dec.15.

I asked IMAX this the other day via their Facebook page and got confirmation that Warner Bros./IMAX: "New digital and laser DCPs were created for this release"

I hope I can find the time to make it over to Udvar Hazy next week to check this out in IMAX-laser.

Last weekend there were two 15/70 3D screenings over at the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum.

True, IF they're using film for projection.

My first, second, and third experiences of the "Polar Express 3D" at my local IMAX were projected via film and 3D layering and dynamics fully resolved. Viewing the same movie, same local IMAX, with digital projection experiences a "milder" less resolved quality, akin to consumer digital projection.

Gotcha. Thanks for the heads up. I wonder how I would be able to tell before we go? These are the two theaters showing close to me:

I have the old DVD anaglyph version of Polar Express and the 3D was quite good, all things considered. Do recall it giving me headaches which assume would not be the case with the blu-ray version.

I remember the theatre I worked at did a road trip to another one of our theatres to see this in a standard theatre which was converted into an IMAX one. It wasn't the real big screen but it stretched from the floor to the ceiling and wall to wall. Being a projectionist I was allowed in the booth to see the setup. They had the real film IMAX projector and showed how the 2 layers were threaded for play. Took them over 16 hours to put the entire thing together as it came in 56-58 boxes for taping together.

At that time it was by far and still is one of not the best 3D experiences I have ever had at the theatre. Most 3D shows suck now when I can enjoy a much brighter and sharper image at home on my projector

Thanks. I'll have to rewatch this in 3D again before December ends. The 3D is a mix of mild, medium to sometimes stronger 3D. Mostly good.

Yeah, this one looks solid on blu ray 3D if you can get it at a fair price.

58 boxes of film, wow, that is something. I don't envy the projectionist who had to assemble that.

Ordered Polar Express 3D off Amazon and found A Christmas Carol 3D at a local shop, hope I can wrangle the family to watch these later this month.

Also bought a used copy of Arthur Christmas 3D earlier this year.

I remember Arthur Christmas having very mild 3D. Polar Express 3D and Polar Express 3D have better 3D. A Very Harold Kumar 3D Christmas has very strong 3D with lots of pop-outs.

FYI to Frank: Suggest you try the 3D depth and Viewpoint calibration settings when you play Arthur Christmas on your 2015 8500 LED. I find the 3D very strong and natively satisfying for this particular film on my OLED with the stronger increase.

It's a nice 3D film for Christmas season from the same guy that made Beowulf, which is a favorite 3D film despite some of the mild 3D shots. Beowulf has a few great strong 3D shots, and medium shots. I need to watch Polar Express 3D now before I forget.
