ST. LOUIS — In honor of Union Station’s 125 anniversary, the newly opened St. Louis Wheel is hosting a free film series.

As Judy Garland exclaimed in Meet Me in St. Louis, "I can't believe it. Right here where we live - right here in St. Louis!"

Every Friday and Saturday night in October, guests can watch ‘Meet Me in St. Louis,’ in the renovated outdoor entertainment plaza in front of the St. Louis Union Station Soda Fountain. In addition to the movies, visitors can enjoy a free light and music show on the Union Station lake every evening.

In November and December, Polar Express will be played on the screen.

The St. Louis Wheel will be open for ticketed rides. Guests can also purchase tickets for the carousel and mini-golf. The Soda Fountain will be open for dinner or ice cream treats and bulk candies.
