When you’ve had enough of the holiday spirit—and, let’s face it, need a break from all that family togetherness—there’s nothing like a Hollywood blockbuster to cure your post-holiday blues.
Luckily, movie-goers have plenty of options during the holiday season. December is a popular time for new Hollywood blockbusters and holiday-themed films, as studios rush to release their titles for awards eligibility and to capture an audience during the holiday season, when more movie-goers are home from work and school and have time to head out to local movie theaters. Several Oscar-winning films produced over the past decade (and earlier) were filmed in Westchester County, including the "Wolf of Wall Street," "Inside Llewyn Davis," and "Catch Me if You Can." In addition, holiday favorites, "The Family Man," and "The Preacher's Wife" were filmed in Westchester.
“Throughout the years, blockbusters filmed in Westchester County have been a hit during the holiday season,” said Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino. “From romance and drama to thriller and comedy, there is an impressive list of award-winning films for everyone in the family to enjoy.”
