Michigan Central Train Depot to be location for Sci-Fi Film
(Detroit Free Press, Oct.13th)



train station(synopsis)
The last train left the station on Jan. 6, 1988. The building has sat "vacant" since then. Shot in 1998, produced in 2004, (access to the building is completely closed now) this documentary weaves personal memories with stunning visuals of Detroit's long abandoned Michigan Central Train Depot. The historic gem, another in a number of Detroit structures in ruin, was designed by Warren & Wetmore; the same architectural firm that built Grand Central Station. Various visitors wander in and out of the station, each stopping to recount what the building has meant to them. Catfish; the homeless person who became the unofficial caretaker for over 2 years, Hazel Love; whose father worked for the railroad for over 40 years, and Jim Harlow who, fascinated by trains, worked as a dispatcher at the station, among others. Plans are being discussed to convert the train station into the new Detroit Police Headquarters. Native Detroiters remain skeptical.
