New Hunger Games Exhibit Coming to New York City
One of the hottest movies of the last several years has been “The Hunger Games,” and fans of the films will now have an interactive exhibit dedicated to the characters and stories from the series.
According to Lionsgate, the new exhibit has been dubbed “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition,” and will kick off a global tour on July 1 when the exhibits open at Discovery Times Square in New York City. The company also announced the second stop on the tour, set for February 2016 at the Innovation Hangar at San Francisco's historic Palace of Fine Arts Exhibition Hall.
For fans of the movie series, “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition” will be a unique chance to experience the film firsthand. The 12,000-square-foot exhibit includes costumes, props, photography, interactive experiences, set recreations and a retail store, all dedicated to the characters and scenes from the movies.
Lionsgate Chief Brand Officer and President Tim Palen released a statement about the exhibit:
“This is an exciting and dynamic initiative growing our biggest global franchise and enabling fans to become even more engaged in the world of The Hunger Games. We've partnered with the leading companies in the event, exhibition and attractions space to create an unforgettable experience that fans will love as part of our plan to extend our Lionsgate brands beyond the big screen and into location-based entertainment around the world.”
“The Hunger Games” movies have grossed more than $2.3 billion internationally, and the exhibit will be the extension of the craze. The exhibit will feature authentic costumes and props, high-tech interactive attractions and detailed set recreations.
As a special treat for fans, “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition” will also feature seven galleries, including District 12, Tribute Train, The Capitol, Making the Games, District 13, Fan Gallery and Katniss's Journey.
