Food & Film @ the Train

Food & Film @ the Train Tracks is an event showcasing the Glendale Metrolink Station, including the historic Southern Pacific Railroad Depot.  This event is part of the Tropico Station Project, a policy effort funded by Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to support transit-oriented development as well as biking, walking and transit. Feedback from participants attending the event will help inform the City and Project Team on how to move forward with policy recommendations for the neighborhoods around the Metrolink Station.

There’s a walking tour of the neighborhood, food trucks (Coolhaus, Kogi BBQ, and the Grilled Cheese Truck), fun and games, and an outdoor screening of Billy Wilder’s great film noir classic, Double Indemnity (featuring a cameo by the Southern Pacific Railroad Depot!).
