Michael C Hall in Kingston NY, Hudson Valley, at The Saint James, New York for filming of Cold In July with Sam Shephard

Did we just say that?  Yes Michael C Hall has been in Kingston, NY.  It's been super hush hush but the rumors are true!  Michael C Hall was staying in Kingston New York during the filming of his new film, Cold in July, in Kingston (The Hudson Valley). 

Michael C Hall aka Dexter was staying at The Saint James Kingston (www.theSaintJamesNY.com), during the filming of his newest movie: Cold In July.  It's the fourth film this year that has been filmed in the Hudson Valley!  

Michael C Hall rented out the entire property with all 4 bedrooms and access to The Saint James' gardens and outdoor grounds for over 5+ weeks!  When we talked with Michaeland asked him what he thought about the home (thesaintjamesny.com), he said he loved it and that The Saint James Kingston was:

If you haven't heard about his new film, "Cold in July" is a feature adaptation of the Joe Lansdale cult novel directed by Jim Mickle.  Michael plays the protagonist Richard Dane, who shoots and kills an armed burglar in his living room. It’s a clear-cut case of self defense to everyone but the burglar’s father, who vows Old Testament-style eye-for-an-eye justice. The cops, the feds, and the Dixie mafia all play a part in the ensuing mayhem. 

Michael was like one of the locals just like anyone else in Kingston, NY.  He like all of us supported many of our local Kingston gems.  If you still haven't been to Kingston you should plan a trip (It's only 1.5 hours from NYC!) and try some of these great places below, all of which Michael also patron-ed:
