"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2" Filming Locations

Lots of stage work and computer-generated scenery complement the practical locations around central Georgia utilized by "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" and "Part 2" (filmed back-to-back).

In addition to the locations listed below, "Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2" used a variety of industrial buildings either not open to the public or still in use in LaGrange, Newnan, and Atlanta, for corridors, stairwells and bunker spaces. The crumbling remains of a Griffin textile mill (now completely torn down) were further damaged and aged to become the ruins of District 12. The lumberjack scene took place at an active mill in Warm Springs, and the hydroelectric dam is a computer-enhanced version of Georgia Power's Plant Yates in Newnan (it's much...much smaller in real life).

Sets were built on stages at EUE Screen Gems, the Georgia World Congress Center, the Atlanta Civic Center, the Corey Center Building, in the parking lot of Aaron's Ampitheatre, and warehouses at Caldwell Tank in Newnan. Major work was done both inside the OFS fiber optic manufacturing complex in Norcross, and on its acres of pavement where a giant green screen was erected and much of the Capitol exterior was built.

Other shooting locations that are open to the public or easy to see from the road are mapped below.
