Not another Christmas movie filming in Ottawa, you say. Well, actually, there are a bunch of shows and movies being shot in the city this summer, and only a couple are holiday films this time.

Some film crews have been spotted at Château Laurier, Westboro, Elgin Street, and some private residences. So, if you keep your eyes peeled, you might see cameras with directors who've been behind some iconic 90s TV shows.

Other film locations are more mysterious, so you might have to do some detective work to find them.

Hotel for the Holidays

This Christmas Movie, Hotel for the Holidays, is brought to you by Ron Oliver, who directed some episodes of the classic 90s shows Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Goosebumps. How cool is that?

"Sir Ronald’s latest motion picture finds him returning to – gasp – a hockey rink in Ontario, Canada," wrote Oliver in an Instagram post. The director also shared a Christmas-decorated shot from the Château Laurier.

So, you might just see crews at your local ice rink or during your next hotel stay.

One Delicious Christmas

One Delicious Christmas is a movie by director Stacey N. Harding, who has led episodes of the spooky but iconic TV series Charmed.

Film crews for the flick were spotted at The Moulin de Provence on Metcalfe Street, and on July 28, the café said on Instagram that it would be closed to film a movie, saying it would "return from Hollywood" on Friday.

Maybe you'll step into a Christmas movie during your next coffee run.
