We are just a few weeks away from the big premiere of the movie Christmas at the Holly Hotel, filmed right in our own Holly, Michigan. The big premiere set for December 4th at the Redford Theater in Detroit quickly sold out leaving locals missing the chance to see the local "Christmas town" on the big screen...until now. A special "2nd Premiere" has been added along with 4 other showings during December around the state.

There was so much excitement in January of this year when the news came out that the historic Holly, Michigan would be welcoming a little Hollywood to town. We all learned that Holly and the Holly Hotel would serve as the backdrop for a new Christmas movie. Sadly soon after filming a fire would change the iconic downtown and idle, only temporarily, the legendary hotel making the movie even more important.
