What you’ll see on the Swan House Hunger Games tour

On the same day that "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" opened, Atlanta History Center debuted its "Games" themed tours of the Swan House, the 1920s historic mansion usually associated with old money Atlanta and sedate gala fundraisers.

Let the (Hunger) Games begin

Before you go all rooting for kindhearted Katniss, consider this: We have our own district tribute in the fight with Atlanta native Stephanie Leigh Schlund, who plays Cashmere. And she’s not just any tribute: She’s from the beautiful, bloodthirsty District One, where career tributes are hardened from birth for vicious war.

The History Center takes advantage of its Hunger Games fame

Well, here’s one way to get preteens interested in history. Lure them with visions of Katniss and Peeta.

Dayo Okeniyi’s star is rising

Spotted! Hunky Hunger Games actors @ Atlantic Station

The good news? Thanks to Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, the source of that high-pitched shrieking heard this week throughout West Midtown has finally been identified. Actors Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth (Oh. My. God. So Gorgeous!!), who are here currently shooting "Catching Fire," the second "Hunger Games" blockbuster, were spotted by a young fan taking in a screening of their "Hunger Games" co-star Woody Harrelson's edgy new dark comedy "Seven Psychopaths" at Atlantic Station's Regal Stadium 16. The ever-gracious actors happily posed for a photo with "Hunger Games" fan Rebecca Foust outside the theater. She later became the coolest kid in her Twitter-sphere when she shared the photo on Twitter (photo by @rebeccaaaf at right) and Atlantic Station borrowed it for the retail/residential center's Instagram account.
