The first in our Film Noir at Union Station series in collaboration with the Film Noir Foundation, we are pleased to present "UNION STATION” (1950, Paramount, 80 min. Dir. Rudolph Mate). This taut thriller features plenty of memorable set piece scenes filmed inside Los Angeles’ historic Union Station and other L.A. locations that double for the film’s Chicago setting. William Holden and Barry Fitzgerald star as the dogged cops who must flush out the psychopathic kidnapper (Lyle Bettger) of a young blind girl without causing a rush-hour panic. Also starring Nancy Olson and Jan Sterling.

Pestaurant LA
Saturday, October 8 from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Santa Monica Third Street Promenade

Western Exterminator and Mondo Taco will host a pop-up “Pestaurant” at the Santa Monica Third Street Promenade. Menu items will be made of bugs and includes “Jamaican Me Hoppy Jerked Seasoned Grasshoppers with Pineapple Salsa”, “Deep South BBQ Beetle Tacos”, “Thai Mai Mealworm Salad” and “Rice Cricket Treats” and even a sweet and savory dessert, “Chocolate Goes with Everything”.

 The “Pestaurant” is designed to raise awareness of pests and draw attention to the fact that while they can be very destructive and a nuisance, they can also be a low-impact, sustainable and nutritious protein alternative. For each bug dish sampled Western Exterminator will donate $1 to the Westside Food Bank, with a goal of donating at minimum $3,000.

The animation doesn't look that great, but if you want to see it in theaters. It’s back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes – Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman.

Shin Godzilla
October 11-18
Multiple Theaters

Funimation decided to release the new Godzilla, not dubbed and probably not as funny because so.  We'll wait for the dub, but you can see the newest messed-up concept of a movie the Japanese made of our favorite giant radioactive lizard. Oh, and Godzilla looks like he was mutated in the 80s.
