Dinner and Movie in The Capitol: The Hunger Games

But the real star of the evening is the food. Tables laden with delicacies line the walls. Everything you can think of, and things you have never dreamed of, lie in wait. …Countless cheeses, breads, vegetables, sweets, waterfalls of wine, and streams of spirits that flicker with flames.
— Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire)

In celebration of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, Suzanne Collins’s new and eagerly awaited Panem novel, The War Memorial is transforming into the infamous President’s Mansion for one glorious evening.

Immerse yourself in the stoic splendor of our 1910 Italian Renaissance-style estate, enjoying custom décor inspired by Philip Messina’s production design of The Hunger Games films. A spectacular handcrafted feast served in our lakefront ballroom will be followed by a screening of the first Hunger Games film in The Patriot Theater.

Capitol-themed attire is encouraged. All guests will have the opportunity to win a fantastic prize — but only one male and one female will be chosen: may the odds be ever in your favor.
