Are you looking for an unforgettable outdoor holiday experience this December? Look no further than Martini Film Studios! Step into a world of movie magic and indulge in a unique holiday experience. In 2023, for the first time, Martini Town, Langley’s very own exterior Film Backlot, was open to the public after being transformed into a Christmas wonderland by a team of skilled industry crew. Visitors explored a New York City Street, courthouse, diner, town square, and small town – all at Merry & Bright. We warmly welcome you to join us this December for an even more magical experience! Don’t miss out on this opportunity! This is a holiday event like no other.

2023 Partners

Our 2023 public event was made possible through the collaborative efforts of numerous dedicated film industry members and Tourism Langley. Their passion, creativity, and commitment have paved the way for an unforgettable experience.

We acknowledge that many community members are facing hardship, and in 2023, a portion of all proceeds were donated to the Langley Food Bank to show our support.
