Chatham Hickory Cinema to Premiere "Holiday Twist"

(CHATHAM, NJ) -- On Friday, December 1st at 7:00pm, Chatham Hickory Cinema will kick-off a five-showing run of the new family-friendly movie, Holiday Twist. The film features Tess Murphy, a Chatham resident and current fourth grader at Lafayette School, as Stella, the daughter of a Grinch-like CEO, trying to help her mom learn to love Christmas again.

Holiday Twist centers on a high-powered female CEO and workaholic (Kelly Stables), whose whole world comes crashing down because of unforeseen circumstances despite her self-perceived importance. With help from a Salvation Army Santa (Blake Leeper) and a little holiday magic, the protagonist finally realizes the key to letting go of her painful past is the answer to becoming the twinkling light that both her community and her family need.

The family film stars Kelly Stables (Superstore), Neal McDonough (Yellowstone), Sean Astin (The Goonies, The Lord of the Rings), James Maslow (Big Time Rush), Emily Tosta (Mayans M.C.), Caylee Cowan (Willy's Wonderland), Brian Thomas Smith (The Big Bang Theory), Haley Reinhart (American Idol), Tess Murphy (Waitress on Broadway, Raising Kanan), Hudson Barry (Servant), Callan Barry (Will Trent), and introduces singer-songwriter Jake Miller, TikTok star Montana Tucker, and paraplegic athlete Blake Leeper.

Holiday Twist was written, directed, and produced by Stephanie Garvin (The Trial of the Chicago 7). Scott M. Rosenfelt (Home Alone) also produced. It has an MPAA rating of PG for thematic material and some language.

Tess Murphy will attend Chatham Hickory Cinema’s opening night of Holiday Twist and will be available for photos, a meet and greet, and other surprises before and after the movie. Please visit Chatham Hickory Cinema or Fandango to purchase your tickets. General admission tickets are $13 for adults, $11.50 for seniors, and $11 for children 11 & under.
