Wonder Woman 1984

Go behind-the-scenes of filming in Alexandria and explore Wonder Woman-inspired experiences

Wonder Woman 1984 was filmed in part in Alexandria, Virginia, in June and July of 2018, with most local filming taking place inside Landmark Mall in Alexandria’s West End. Warner Bros.' much-anticipated sequel stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal and more, jumping ahead some seven decades in time from 2017's Wonder Woman. Set designers transformed Landmark Mall's interior atrium into a bustling 1980s shopping mall in its neon heyday, with many classic storefronts making memorable cameos.

The iconic Virginia is for Lovers brand is also on the big screen, as part of a seven-foot-tall drum prop emblazoned with the Virginia is for Lovers logo on screen during a scene filmed at the Landmark Mall in Alexandria. The prop will be on display in Old Town Alexandria January 7 to February 28, 2021.

In addition to viewing a window display of the Virginia is for Lovers drum prop, beginning January 7, 2021, film enthusiasts can experience a new self-guided outdoor stroll among film- and TV-related sites in Old Town Alexandria plus a variety of Wonder Woman-inspired offerings at select Alexandria businesses. Business offerings include themed cocktails, beer packages, gourmet popcorn, donuts and original tattoo designs available as temporary and permanent tattoos.

Check out a special featurette video below highlighting director Patty Jenkins' and star Gal Gadot's experience visiting and filming in Virginia, including a sneak peek of the drum-atic Virginia is for Lovers set-piece.
