On Feb. 5, filmmaker Jim Havey will debut his documentary, Denver Union Station: Portal to Progress, at the Colorado Preservation, Inc.'s Saving Places conference at Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver.
The film goes into great detail about the history of Denver's Union Station and the impact it had on the city. The film also looks at the planned redevelopment of the station now in process.
“The railroads changed everything, from perception of time and distance to the scope of people’s hopes and dreams," Havey said in a statement. "Union Station was a welcoming gateway for a procession of arrivals and departures that transformed the development of Denver and the Rocky Mountain West. With great public attention on the future of Union Station the time is right for a revealing and entertaining interpretation of the history surrounding the depot."
