Have you ever watched a movie and thought that a certain town looked picture perfect? Between the residents who reside there, the small town feel and setting, the Hudson Valley truly has all that it takes to be presented on TV.

A Hudson Valley Diner was featured in a Hallmark Channel Movie. The Main Line Diner in Maybrook was a part of this movie. The Hallmark Channel aired the film, "Redemption in Cherry Springs'' on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at 9pm. This is a part of their Hallmark Movies and Mysteries.

Instead of the Maybrook Diner, it is known as Uncle Joe's Diner which was fitting for the movie.

A local celebrity and Maybrook's mayor, Dennis Leahy was set as an extra during the scenes. This movie is special in so many ways. Most importantly, it was the first Hallmark movie that was filmed here, in the Hudson Valley. 

If you know anyone who lives in Orange County, specifically in Maybrook, pass this article along to them. I was excited to see this town on the big screen.
