With Metro lines being extended and new stations built over the next couple of years across Los Angeles, the trains and stations are bound to become a bigger part of the fabric of L.A. life and therefore, entertainment. For film, TV and commercial productions hoping to use these properties as locations, there’s now one place to turn: Hollywood Locations has announced that they are now representing the L.A. County Metropolitan Transportation Authority for all filming on METRO owned property.
There’s history here, and a longstanding relationship. Hollywood Locations has represented and marketed the regional transit hub, Los Angeles Union Station, for over the last 13 years, estimating that they have negotiated and coordinated over 1,000 film and event productions at the property. Recent features to have filmed at the historic station include The Dark Knight Rises, Friends with Benefits and Gangster Squad.
“We are very excited about this opportunity and look forward to offering the numerous Metro properties and locations available for filming throughout Los Angeles County,” said Pete Brosnan, Sr. Vice President of Hollywood Locations.
To inquire about filming at a Metro-owned property, Brosnan says to contact Portfolio Manager Jeff Cooper at (213) 617-0111.
