Even The Hunger Games filmed much of the District 12 scenes here on the edge of Uptown Shelby. If you are one of the many Hunger Games fans, we do welcome you. Most of the sets used in production have been torn down and much of the filming took part in a secured private warehouse complex. But you can see the interesting atmosphere and place where some of the work was done. Plus you can enjoy some of the same restaurants and shops where members of the crew and cast came to cool off during filming. Oak shaded sidewalks with comfortable benches, friendly folks and great food make it believable.
