  1. the concept of Arts & Cultural programming at Union Station is a great one but during the screening of Chinatown the audio was not good we couldn’t hear most of the film, there were sightline issues (the chairs should have been on risers) and there was no food and nowhere to picnic. And no one knew that TRAXX bar was going to be open after the screening for people to get a drink and food which was a huge miss, someone should have made that announcement…

    • Hi Chandon,

      Thanks for the feedback! I’ll pass it on so it can be incorporated in the planning of future Union Station events.

  2. Levitt Pavilion LA in MacArthur Park this evening should be a good time and is next to the Red Line. Dust Bowl Revival is playing. They played at Levitt Pasadena (in Memorial Park on top of the Gold Line) last year, it was a blast.
