As Seen on TV – Three Famous Georgia Sets
Georgia, especially Atlanta, has a reputation as the “Hollywood of the South”. It’s not hard to see why with over 20 films and TV shows filming here this year alone. Georgia is attracting some Hollywood heavy hitters. For example, Marvel, since Ant Man has filmed many of their follow up films at the Pinewood Studios in Fayetteville. The film industry in Georgia keeps growing, and with it screen time for local spots. Buildings in Georgia can be seen in so many of our favorite movies and television shows.
Here are three locations in Georgia that you might have seen on your screen.
1. Swan House – Located at the Atlanta History Center, this 15 Acre estate was used as President Snow’s house in the series The Hunger Games, first seen in the second movie in the series, Catching Fire. The Swan House was built in 1928. You can visit the house Monday-Saturday 11 AM to 4 pm and Sundays 1 to 4 pm.
2. Gilbert House – This is the last season for The Vampire Diaries and the last season they will film in Georgia. This 5900 sq. ft house in Covington, GA was made famous when it was used as Elena Gilbert’s house in the first few seasons. The house was actually put up for sale in 2012, sans the good looking actors of course.
3. The Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre – That’s right, we had our 15 minutes of fame, when The Walking Dead choose us to be the CDC in the AMC thriller. It’s amazing to be a part of such huge staple in pop culture.
