Make a Date with Mom for the Hallmark Mother's Day Movie Marathon

Mark your calendar now for a virtual movie date with Mom this weekend.

Amid the restaurant closures and stay-home orders, I won’t be taking a Mother’s Day outing with my mom this year. But even though we can't meet for a fancy brunch (try making one of these breakfast boards at home instead!) or go to the movies, we can still celebrate the holiday by spending quality time together from afar. As cheesy as it sounds, that’s all my mom really wants, anyway. The good news is, Hallmark Channel is making it easy to have a low-key movie night by airing a Mother’s Day movie marathon. Host a virtual movie night by tuning in at the same time and periodically chatting about the movie over the phone, FaceTime, or Google Hangout.

The marathon kicks off the day before Mother's Day, Saturday, May 9 at 4:00 a.m. Central Standard Time (CST), and includes a lineup of 20 back-to-back classic Hallmark Channel flicks that go through Sunday evening. The films selected for this marathon all feature strong female leads and sweet mother-daughter relationships. If you already tuned in for Hallmark’s Christmas movie marathons last month, don’t worry, these movies don’t overlap: Since the only connection is mother-daughter relationships, these films span all the seasons.
