Union Station's Ghost Restaurant On Film

This morning I read Franklin Avenue's exciting post that Metro is seeking a restaurant to occupy the spectacular empty Fred Harvey Restaurant space at Union Station. Tonight, on a completely unrelated note, I wondered, "Hey, what happened to Fiona Apple?!" and looked her up on youtube. The first video I stumbled across is an excellent example of the location's second life in film and video - it has a ravishing star turn in the video for Fiona Apple's "Paper Bag," directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. What other films and restaurants have featured the deserted Fred Harvey restaurant space? Let us know in the comments.
