Mary in District 13

Tonight, I visited District 12, District 13, the Capitol; I got to chill with Cinna and Katniss, Professor Snow. You know how it goes. Head to Times Square and get shot-putted into another dimension.

I just came back from Discovery Times Square where the Hunger Games Exhibit opened this month. The exhibit gives visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the movie enterprise, and just enough in front of the scenes action to keep you feeling like you’re watching J-Law in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (which really shouldn’t have been done in parts, but that’s besides the point).

I liked how the exhibit flowed – from District 12’s humble beginnings, onto the high speed train to the Capitol, and all the way to District 13 in the heat of the uprising. Along the way, you get to learn about the costumes and set design for the movie, plus a few hidden details I didn’t know about the author’s choices in the book.

Scroll through the pics, and see for yourself! Then volunteer as tribute to fight your way through Times Square to see the exhibit before the end of the year.

Cool interactive exhibit to help visualize where the districts are located. Looks like District 13 is where New York City would be. MMHMM. REPRESENT.

Party time. Even though we’re all super nervous because we’re about to play games of death.

Hope you enjoyed the photos and my impromptu summarization of the story of the Hunger Games. Let me know if you end up checking out the exhibit, we can swap nerd stories.
