Some of these places look the same but some of the changes were made in the movies according to the requirements of the film. While some places are photoshopped to make them look more attractive on the screen. It all depends on what the filmmakers require for the film. We are surprised to know that The Grand Budapest Hotel is actually an abandoned store in Germany. Who would have thought it would be a store but that’s how it is. Did you know The President Snow house from “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is actually the Swan house built in 1928? No doubt, it was the perfect venue for the film. Scroll down for more.
