Metro Art presents “Them!,” (1954, 94 min, Dir. Gordon Douglas) as the next installment of our Sci-Fi at Union Station series.
This black-and–white science fiction cult classic is a pioneer of the “nuclear monster” genre and the first to portray a colossal sized insect. Culminating in a climactic battle scene set in Los Angeles, “Them!” follows the accidental creation of man-eating ants that threaten mankind. Starring James Whitmore, Edmund Gwenn and Joan Weldon.
This series highlights Los Angeles, a capital of Science Fiction, renowned for being an inspiration and backdrop for many fundamental works within the genre. “Them!” features scenes shot in Union Station’s railroad yard and at the nearby LA River.
This screening is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 8:00 pm.
