PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – Arts and entertainment company Rivulet Media has announced plans to turn Phoenix’s Union Station into a 10-acre mixed-use production studio. The company says it wants to preserve the building’s history. The Spanish Revival-style building was constructed in 1923 in downtown Phoenix. It was used as an Amtrak station until 1996 when it was closed. The property is approximately 10 acres of land near 3rd Avenue and Jackson Street.
“This project is special because this is where Phoenix was born. Before Sky Harbor Airport, this is where people first got off the train in hopes of building a better life in the west,” said venture capitalist Aaron Klusman. “Having our two companies open here in the heart of Phoenix further preserves and encourages that spirit of innovation and adventure that initially sparked Phoenix’s growth.”
Rivulet Media subsidiary Rivulet Films said the studio would be used for production projects related to film, television, animation, music and games. In the long term, the company said it plans to expand the area to include a hotel, residential tower, and more. Klusman said, “It’s like our own little modern-day Warner Brothers studio…done with a bit of boldness and guts while still staying true to Phoenix’s unique history. Which I absolutely adore.
The company will release Machine Gun Kelly’s new film “Taurus” and Demi Moore’s “Please Baby Please” this summer. To learn more about the media group, Click here.
