Christmas TV Movie Featuring East Aurora Airs in December
If you missed, A Prince For Christmas, the iON Channel television movie filmed in Western New York, don't worry. The film will air again on Saturday, December 5, and Thursday, December 24, (Channel 18 if you have Time Warner + 51 on Direct TV).
The film, which filmed in the beginning of 2015, used Western New York as its filming site, including the Riley Street Station Restaurant, Vidler's 5 + 10, the Arcade and Attica Railroad.
According to WIVB:
Crews from Hollywood recorded the classic Christmas romance during the worst of the February freeze. “You’ll absolutely recognize everything in this movie because we use Main Street in East Aurora. We use the theater…Vidler’s…Riley Street Station,” associate producer Markus Hill told News 4.
Hill works for Hybrid LLC, a company that spends all years making Christmas movies. He says this film is “…One of the only Christmas films airing on television this year that has real snowfall. It just looks so much more authentic.”
