After successful seasons in New York City and San Francisco an exhibition based on The Hunger Games film series is now in Australia and on at the International Convention Centre Sydney in Darling Harbour.
After stepping into the exhibit area visitors are welcomed with a video message by Elizabeth Banks (Effie Trinket) in character and then as herself as she introduces the exhibition.
After the video welcome the doors open and visitors can move at their own pace through 7 themed areas, including District 12, Tribute Train, The Capitol, Making the Games, District 13, Katniss’s Journey, and Fan Gallery.
There are over a 1000 props and costumes from the four films (The Hunger Games , The Hunger Games: Catching Fire , The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 , The Hunger Games – Mockingjay Part 2 ).
Highlights include ‘The Girl on Fire’ dress, the Mockingjay dress, the Mockingjay armour, Katniss’ wedding dress and her hunting bow.
There are also several hands-on interactive activities including an interactive map of Panem and a stunt choreography challenge.
At the end there is an extensive gift shop with a variety of Hunger Games souvenirs. I purchased the Mockingjay fridge magnet.
Tickets are available online from Ticketek or at the venue.
May the odds be ever in your favour!
