Visit Alexandria has created a self-guided tour filled with different experiences and offerings inspired by 'Wonder Woman 1984.' Part of the movie, released this year, was filmed inside Landmark Mall in Alexandria’s West End in 2018.

For the movie, the mall was transformed into what it looked like in the 1980's, with some emblematic stores making an appearance. A seven-foot drum prop with 'Virginia is for Lovers' stamped on it hung from the mall's ceiling in an action scene.

That same drum prop will be on a display in Old Town Alexandria from Jan. 7 to Feb. 28 at 101 N. Union Street near King Street and the waterfront.

In a special behind-the-scenes featurette, the star of 'Wonder Woman 1984,' Gal Gadot, and movie director Patty Jenkins talk about their experience filming in Virginia.

Jenkins explained that some of the props used in the mall were donated to local charities that "would be in line with Wonder Woman's spirit."

The video shows staff delivering stuffed animals to children at INOVA Children's Hospital.

"They welcomed us with so much love and support," Gadot said about working in Virginia. "The crews are amazing and the people are great."
