When Seigle’s remodeled a Winnetka, Illinois kitchen in the 80s, we never imagined it would go on to live in infamy! If you have ever seen the holiday classic Home Alone, you remember the scene: Kevin McCallister sits at his kitchen counter eating cereal, and it dawns on him—the hustle and bustle of having all his relatives in his house the previous evening is no longer there. He thinks about it, and worriedly delivers a great line from the movie, “I made my family disappear.”
This is one of our favorite parts, along with this one:
We also love the pizza prank, blowtorch to the head, and any other scenes that take place in the kitchen of that amazing home. Why? Because these are some of the most memorable scenes from the movie in which Seigle’s Cabinets took its stroll through Hollywood. Seigle’s actually supplied the MasterBrand cabinetry for the filming of the movie. So while everyone else is enjoying the young Macaulay Culkin charm as he cocks his BB gun and says, “This is it!” We are looking over his shoulder to catch our appearance in this Christmas classic.
When the movie came out, we thought it might be our 15 minutes of fame, but it’s turned out to be more sticking than that! Many people watch this movie as an annual a holiday tradition.
When you watch the movie this holiday season—and maybe you do this over and over, like us!—check out Seigle’s starring Hollywood role!
