LAVA is presenting a free showing on Thursday of the 1949 short “Of Scrap and Steel,” which was produced by the Union Rescue Mission and features character actor Porter Hall.

The film will be shown on on the roof of the Union Rescue Mission, 545 S. San Pedro.  Doors open at 6 p.m., with remarks by the Rev. Andy Bales of the mission, and my pals from Esotouric, Nathan Marsak and Richard Schave. The film will be shown at 7:30 p.m., followed by a Q&A. Admission is free but reservations are requested.
