Everyone knows how I love visiting sets. Twilight Series, Goonies, Remember Me are among some of the films I have toured, with Atlanta (Walking Dead, Vampire Diaries and more) on my list to visit. Another one definitely on my list is Chicago for Divergent. It can be a lot of work to piece together locations, especially as a tourist, so I am thrilled to see this list compiled and wanted to share it with anyone else who is planning a trip to Chicago.
The Abnegation sector of Divergent’s Chicago was filmed on the corner of W Harrison St and S Wells St, just across from the Oscar O. D’Angelo Park.
But don’t go there expecting to see the square, grey houses where Tris climbs to the roof. Reality is somewhat disappointing…
The interior of the Defender Building (2400 South Michigan Avenue) was used to film the scenes where all the Dauntless gather to eat.
FERRIS WHEEL / NAVY PIER / WAR GAMES
This one is pretty obvious…
When Tris goes to talk to Caleb at Erudite HQ, she walks right past this…
Which is this…
That’s the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library, located at S Ellis Av and E 57th St
It was also used as an interior location, where Caleb and Tris talk.
The entrance to The Hub, where Tris and Caleb go for the Choosing Ceremony was shot at the Tribune Tower.
The Tower is located at 435 N Michigan Ave.
Just a little south from the Tribune Tower is the Seventeenth Church of Christ, where the Choosing Ceremony was filmed.
