MGM Grand Hotel & Casino Las Vegas will host an exciting exhibition in May which is based on a popular movie/book franchise called The Hunger Games. The name of the exhibition is The Hunger Games: The Exhibition, and it offers a fully-immersive experience from the movie, including archery training, and many other interesting interactives, costumes, props, and more. The exhibition is actually on tour and has already visited Australia, San Francisco, Louisville, and New York. Las Vegas is the next stop, and it is going to be one of the best exhibition in this city, especially for those who consider themselves fans of the movies and the books.
The Hunger Games is a three-part movie from Lionsgate that managed to gross over $3 billion worldwide. Moreover, it managed to gain a cult following, with thousands of people around the globe discussing the film and visiting conferences and exhibitions related to it. The exhibition is entirely family-friendly, and it is the second exhibition made by Cityneon Holding Limited company and Victory Hill Exhibitions, which is its subsidiary company.
Some of the interesting things you will be able to see during the exhibition include a couple of galleries devoted to the movie such as the Hall of Justice, the office that belongs to President Snow in the movie. Furthermore, visitors will be able to take a look at the Tribute Train, District 13, and other cool areas features in The Hunger Games.
The archery training ground is definitely the most important part of the exhibition as it will be set in a digital training lab that is interactive and 60-foot wide. This kind of exhibition is the first of its kind to take place on the Las Vegas Strip.
About The Hunger Games
The original story was written by Suzanne Collins, who is an American novelist. Suzanne managed to inspire the filmmakers who turned her novels into a feature film that consist of three parts: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay.
The genre of the film is a dystopian science fiction which follows the life of a young woman called Katniss Everdeen who lives in a post-apocalyptic nation called Panem that is located in present-day North America. The people of this nation are divided into districts, all of which are heavily supervised by a couple of people in power, much like in Orwell’s 1984. Every year, a couple of young people are selected to take part in the Hunger Games, which is an event that takes place in The Capitol, the city that basically has all the power over the districts.
However, things get quite interesting as Katniss turns out to be quite a rebel who managed to stand up against such a corrupted system and shake the foundation of Panem, making a lot of other districts stand up to fight for themselves in their struggle to achieve equality and destroy the evil empire that rules over them.
All three books and movies are a great homage to many legendary dystopian novels such as “1984” by Orwell and “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley. Therefore, if you are interested in dystopian fiction and enjoy good action movies set in the future, make sure to check out The Hunger Games trilogy and then check out this amazing exhibition that will take place in MGM Grand.
Welby Altidor, who is the Group Chief Creative Office of Cityneon Holdings and Victory Hill Exhibitions stated that they were thrilled to collaborate with Lionsgate and to expand their portfolio to Las Vegas as well.
