Pullman Yards has become a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry
On the edges of Kirkwood and Edgewood, Pullman Yards has transformed itself from a historic ruin, into a brilliant entertainment complex. Originally built in 1904, this iconic Atlantan location has continuously reinvented itself throughout history, and there’s no sign of it stopping! Pullman was renowned for luxurious rail travel across the country from 1926, but it’s also been used by Coca-Cola when it was a just a start-up, as well as a filming location for Hollywood blockbusters like the Hunger Games, and Baby Driver.
Last year, we saw Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience make its U.S. debut at Pullman Yards, solidifying the location’s public comeback on an epic scale. The Pratt Pullman District still have so much more in store for the ATL, and there’s so much to be excited about! Here are 5 unmissable things to do at Pullman Yards.
