Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Merry Movie Week 2023 Printable Schedule

For those of us who are crazy about Christmas and eagerly anticipate a healthy dose of holiday cheer during the summer months, the wait is almost over!

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries continues their annual tradition of bringing us Merry Movie Week 2023, leading up to Hallmark Channel's Christmas in July event.

Merry Movie Week kicks off the evening of June 23 and runs through June 30.

Hallmark's Merry Movie Week 2023 Details

If you're hoping Merry Movie Week means 24/7 Christmas movies for an entire week, you may be disappointed.  

You can expect round-the-clock festive movies on Saturday and Sunday, June 24 & 25, but for the rest of the week, it's regular mystery shows during the day and twinkly lights and tinsel from 5pm-11pm Eastern. 

No new premieres will be featured during Merry Movie Week, but Hallmark Channel will unveil two new Christmas movies in July.

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries currently has all of the upcoming Merry Movie Week titles featured on their website's schedule, but currently, no printable checklist is available--this could be due to reliance on the Hallmark checklist app, since many viewers prefer tracking movies on apps.

For those of you who still appreciate a printable checklist, you can find one below.  Just click on the image to download and print.
