See just a handful of recent holiday movies that were filmed in the Nutmeg State:
“Next Stop, Christmas”
The Hallmark flick, which premiered in 2021, features Christopher Lloyd and Lyndsy Fonseca. You may recognize the Essex Steam Train, Simon’s Marketplace, downtown Chester, and other locations throughout New Haven, Salem, Old Saybrook, and Hartford.
