How often do you get to crawl into the scenes or on the set of your favorite movie? Well, there are lots of chances if you’re part of the Hunger Games Unofficial Fan Tours in Atlanta, GA. These are some of the pictures from our recent day tour (it takes place pretty much every weekend and is open to anyone willing to pay for the tour…but be ready to geek out on all things Hunger Games). To stay true to #WordlessWednesday, I’ll keep this brief, but know that there is video coming later. You’re going to want to know more! Meantime, you can find out more in this earlier post.
This is one of the props built for the movie–an additional staircase made of paper mache.
This is the President’s desk…the one used in the movie and on display at the Swan House in Atlanta (which offers a tour, as well, but is included as part of this larger tour package).
The veranda where President Snow greets the crowd in District 1 during his party.
The Presidential dining table. I’m sitting in Donald Sutherland’s spot.
Archery classes are part of the tour.
The Cornucopia looked like this during the movie. There were only two stone trails for actors to run on. The others were created with CG.
This is what the Cornucopia set looks like now. It’s actually the water park in Clayton County. It was also where the volleyball games were played for the ’96 Olympics.
The jacket is one of the 500 replicas created after the first movie was made.
This is District 12, AKA Atlanta’s The Goat Farm. They shipped coal in that you can still find on the ground.
I love that line.
