Grand Central Market dinner and Chinatown screening

For the first time in decades, the venerable Grand Central Market will be open for dinner from 6-8pm on December 12 as part of a special screening next door at the Million Dollar Theatre of one of the greatest LA movies of all-time, Paramount Picture's Chinatown—marking the eve of the masterpiece film's 40th anniversary. Roman Polanski's neo-noir drama, starring a very dapper Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, was inspired in part by the real-life water engineer William Mulholland, whose signature achievement was the Los Angeles Aqueduct, which opened 100 years ago this year. Coincidentally, Mulholland reigned over his L.A. water empire from a suite of offices atop the Metropolitan Water District building, a 1917 architectural landmark that also houses the Million Dollar Theatre... and everything comes full circle.
