The Onion’s A.V. Club, Daryl Dixon, and Halloween Hijinks!

Things have been crazy busy at Atlanta Movie Tours lately, and we are loving every minute of it! Here’s a little update on what’s been going on, where you can see us out and about, and what’s coming up with Atlanta Movie Tours!

The Onion’s A.V. Club, hosted by Kyle Ryan, stopped by Atlanta Movie Tours Gifts and Concessions with Josh and Jacob from The Fu Music to chat about The Walking Dead and to see some Atlanta filming locations that were featured in Season 1 of the popular zombie drama. We had so much fun showing everyone around. Take a look at this episode of their “Pop Pilgrims” series where our very own Carrie Sagel Burns discusses The Walking Dead and its impact on Atlanta!

Are you a Norman Reedus fan or an Andrew Lincoln fan? Can’t pick just one? We can’t either, and now we don’t have to! In this hilarious Entertainment Weekly article, Norman and Andrew sat down to talk about their fans, The Walking Dead, and…Atlanta Movie Tours? Yes, that’s right! Norman Reedus, Mr. Daryl Dixon himself, mentioned running into Carrie and Patti at Bottle Rocket in Atlanta and learning all about Atlanta Movie Tours. You can check out the article here!

We can’t wait to see you!

Raise your hand if you’re excited for Walker Stalker Con! (If you could see us right now we have both hands raised into the air, jumping up and down!) We can’t believe it’s less than a month away!

Fans of The Walking Dead- you do not want to miss this! We are absolutely thrilled to be a sponsor of the first ever Walker Stalker Con! Walker Stalker Con, a zombie, horror, and sci-fi convention, will be taking over The Westin Hotel in Downtown Atlanta November 1st-3rd. The impressive guest list for this convention includes The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, and Laurie Holden, Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito, and horror alums Kane Hodder and Judith O’Dea! And that’s just naming a few!

To accommodate all the fans traveling to Atlanta for this convention, Atlanta Movie Tours is offering the popular Big Zombie Tour Part 1 on Friday, November 1st at 10:00 AM. Be sure to book your tickets soon, this will sell out!

Lastly, we would like to give a special shout-out to literally the thousands of people that stopped by our shop, Atlanta Movie Tours Gifts and Concessions, for Flux Night on October 5th! We had so much fun and appreciate everyone that came by to check us out!

Whew! I think that’s everything for now. Do you see why we say we are crazy busy? We wouldn’t change it for anything though!
