Hunger Games town up for sale
The Marquee Blog reports: Here's your chance to own a piece of Hunger Games history.
You know that abandoned mill town in North Carolina where much of the blockbuster movie was filmed? Well it’s for sale, courtesy of its owner, reports the Guardian.
The price tag for Henry River Mill Village, which covers 72 acres, is reportedly $1.4 million.
It's where many scenes for Hunger Games heroine Katniss Everdeen's District 12 were filmed, but in real life, the yarn mill that the town was centered around shut down in the 1960s, and the last resident packed up in 1987.
The mill itself burned down in 1977 but at least 20 other structures remain - including a company store that was turned into a family bakery for the film, where Katniss meets Peeta Mellark in a flashback.
