Thinkwell Creative Director Kate McConnell talks about the new opening of the Hunger Games Exhibit
Here’s your chance to go to Panem without being killed by teenagers.
The Hunger Games: The Exhibition opens in New York’s Times Square Wednesday, kicking off a six-month showcase of costumes, props, set recreations and interactives tied to the blockbuster book and movie franchise. Across seven themed galleries — organized by districts, The Capitol and stages of the games — fans can get a glimpse of key film artifacts, including the “Girl on Fire” dress worn by heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), her Mockingjay armor and pin, and of course, her trusty bow.
Unfortunately, you can’t simply “volunteer as tribute” to get in on the action. Ticket prices range from $22.50 to $29.50 and all ages are welcomed. Located at Discovery Times Square on 44th Street (between 7th and 8th avenues), the exhibit is open from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and until 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
