Apart from Metro’s efforts to direct LA Union Station’s future role in regional transportation, not much is discussed when considering the iconic station as a public space. However, a recent film screening hosted at the former ticket hall reexamined how the station can be used to unite disparate persons through entertainment. The station has a long history as a filming site and continues to be popular for film and television production. The screening was meant to be seen as a way for travelers to connect with the station, its glamorous past and its promising future. Sadly, some of that excitement has been recently muted by new regulations that discourage transients from using the station.
