Now you see me – New Orleans

New Hollywood, more commonly known as New Orleans, has been the movie location for big productions like “Jurassic World“, but also “Now you see me” has been filmed partialy here.

The cafe Du Monde is where Woody Harrelson does his mind reading trick.

A bit more style can be found at the Napoleon House, which can also be seen in “JFK”. Here the horsemen make an escape.

Want to buy something weird in a store seen in the movie? Try Reverend Zombie’s House of Voodoo.

A final bar that can be seen in the film, is the one near Roosevelt Hotel, the Sazerac bar. With a hotel closeby, this might be a nice place to end your tour, although it might be a bit expensive….

Jurassic World – New Orleans

Key to the movie “Jurassic World”, are the scenes on the theme parks Main Street. In fact, a real theme park was used for these scenes. Hurricane Katrina destroyed a Six Flags theme park in New Orleans (how ironic, a hurricane destroyed the original locations for Jurassic Park). The Six Flags park was never reopened, but proved to be very usefull for the movie makers.
