WHEELING, W.Va.---

Tickets are on sale now for the red-carpet premiere of the new holiday movie "A Christmas Tree Miracle," which was filmed in and around the Wheeling, W.Va. area, will be held on Friday, Nov. 15th at the historic Capitol Theatre in downtown Wheeling.


The movie, which focuses on a self-absorbed family who finds themselves down on their luck at Christmastime and are taken in by an eccentric tree farmer, was filmed back in 2012 under the working title "Random Acts of Christmas."  The inspirational film stars Kevin Sizemore ("Under the Dome," "Resurrection" and a native of Princeton, W.Va.), Claudia Esposito ("The Pledge") and famed Hollywood actor Terry Kiser ("Weekend at Bernies.")  The movie co-stars Barrett Carnahan ("The Pledge"), Emily Capehart ("The Pledge" and a senior at Wheeling Park High School) and introduces Siomha Kenney as "Nina."


The film is produced, written and directed by the same team that created "The Pledge" (a.k.a. as "Doughboy") which played to sold-out theaters in the Ohio Valley in 2011. "A Christmas Tree Miracle" was given the highest rating possible by the Dove Foundation, an organization that rates family-themed movies, calling it a "well written story that will touch many lives."


"We are so excited to be holding our premiere at the renovated Capitol Theatre in Wheeling and showcasing the Ohio Valley's beautiful locations and talent," says Kristin Seibert, executive producer.  "Like 'The Pledge/'Doughboy,' our new Christmas movie has warmed the hearts of those who have seen it."


Tickets are available on the Capitol Theatre's website (www.capitoltheatrewheeling.com), by calling 1-800-514-3849 or by visiting the Wesbanco Arena Box Office.  


Tickets are $22 to walk the red carpet and screen the movie.  Members of the community can also upgrade their ticket to attend the VIP after-party with cast and crew at the Capitol.  A portion of all ticket sales will go to help Ohio Valley charities including St. Matthew's Food Pantry, the Wheeling Soup Kitchen and the Wheeling Homeless Coalition.
"The community was so generous as we filmed our movie, it's a small way of giving back," says Seibert.
