If you are a Hallmark channel devotee, you may have noticed that Cape May has appeared in one of her new Christmas movies. You miss ? Here’s what to look for.
There are few places in New Jersey more festive during the holidays than Cape May. Between Congress Hall, the Washington Street Mall and all the Victorian houses, the whole place looks like it belongs in a Christmas movie.
Which is why I wonder what took Hallmark Channel so long to come to the same conclusion.
Now, I don’t really dedicate myself to watching the Hallmark channel. I can stumble upon it on weekends and leave it on for a bit, but I don’t have it 24/7. So, thanks to Wildwood Video Archive for pointing out that our beautiful Cape May was recently featured in the Hallmark Channel Christmas Movie Premiere. “Christmas at the Golden Dragon”.
Wildwood Video Archive writes, ‘After 55 minutes, [filmakers] did a quick exterior shot before entering a restaurant scene, and BOOM… There was Cape May. Their website goes on to say, ‘It only lasted about three seconds, but it showed a snowy mall on Washington Street. It looked like something they probably bought off a movie picture site, but it was still so fun to “see” Cape May on the Hallmark Channel.
Here’s the script for “Christmas at the Golden Dragon,” according to iMDb: “When a beloved Chinese restaurant in the Midwest announces its closure just before Christmas, it prompts its clientele to re-examine their relationships in a series of interconnected stories amid the chaos of its busiest week of the year.”
So the next time you see this movie title pop up on the Hallmark Channel Guide, sit back and watch or hit “record,” and see if you can spot Washington Street Mall.
And I agree with Wildwood Video Archive. Cape May is special enough to have its own ENTIRE Christmas movie. Picture this: “The big movie star returns to his hometown to visit his sick mother, only to fall in love with the owner of a local candy store.” So ! Are you reading this, Hallmark?
