   Metro Art and the Film Noir Foundation are joining forces to present three classic cinema screenings at Union Station in Los Angeles. And, at least a portion of each production was shot inside the building. Because of Union Station’s beautiful and classic art deco design, it has served as the backdrop for many more movies since.

   Here is the schedule:

~ Union Station (1950) – October 7th at 8p. Starring William Holden and Nancy Olson, it was directed by Rudolph Maté. Writer, historian, cinematic programmer, and film noir expert Alan K. Rode will to introduce the flick.

~ Criss Cross (1949) – November 4th at 8p. The iconic motion picture stars Burt Lancaster, Richard Long, Yvonne De Carlo. It was directed by Robert Siodmak.

~ Too Late For Tears (1949)December 2nd at 8p. It stars the alluring Lizabeth Scott and Dan Duryea. It had nearly disappeared, as many of the original 35mm prints have been lost. The Foundation did find one, however, and was been able to repair it.
