The exhibition Girona plató shows the city's transformation in films and series

29/06/16 | The display at Casa Pastors details the different roles Girona has played from the early days of cinema right up to Game of Thrones.

Filming for the series Game of Thrones in Girona has brought the city international recognition as a film set, but this is not a new phenomenon: over the past hundred years Girona has been chosen on numerous occasions as the setting for cinema and television fiction. The exhibition Girona plató shows how the city has been transformed for films and series, as well as for advertisements, by offering an exhaustive account of the different roles the city has played in national and international productions. The display opened on 18 June at Casa Pastors, where it will remain until after the Sant Narcís festival.

The TV series Game of Thrones, one of the stars of the exhibition, is presented through images, original costumes, filming material and reproductions of the weapons used by some of the main characters.

Other relevant data on the impact of filming Game of Thrones in the city include the more than 1.7 million impressions registered on social networks since the new season premiered and the visit by over a thousand fans of the series to photograph themselves sitting on the Iron Throne, which was temporarily installed in the lobby of the Municipal Theatre.

The exhibition is on display at Casa Pastors from 18 June until 30 September, and from 29 October to 6 November. From June to August it will be open to the public from 11 am to 6 pm, Monday to Saturday, and from 11 am to 2 pm on Sundays and bank holidays. In September the opening hours will remain the same, but it will be closed on Mondays. Entrance is free.

The Girona plató exhibition has been produced by Girona City Council through the Girona History Museum, the Cinema Museum and the Girona Film Office, with the collaboration of the Benejam Collection, the Filmoteca de Catalunya film library, the Girona office of the Catalan Architects' Association and the company Movistar+.
