Hallmark’s ‘Christmas in Harlem’ movie filming in Hartford


HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — It’s late summer right now, but downtown Hartford has transformed into a winter wonderland.

A Hallmark movie is being filmed outside a 150-year-old brownstone building on Capitol Avenue. The neighborhood will portray New York in the film called “Christmas in Harlem.”

There is no release date or cast list yet. It’s produced by Synthetic Cinema, a filmmaking company in Rocky Hill.

Some people living in the area said it’s exciting to have the crew there.

“What amazes me is how many people it takes to make a movie. There have to be 70-80 people working to shoot a movie… just the scope of it kind of blows me away,” said Christopher Lea of Hartford.

Filming inside and outside the brownstone will last about three weeks. There was a casting call put out for local extras.

During filming, there’ll also be road closures along Capitol Avenue between Main and Hudson streets.
