Movie fans may be able to get a piece of the Pacific Dining Car steakhouse later this month as

the iconic restaurant featured in movies such as “Training Day” closes its doors and liquidates. The restaurant said it is shutting down its original Los Angeles location after more than a century of business as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. It closed its Santa Monica location a few months ago.

Liquidator TAGeX Brands said it is holding three online auctions ending Sept. 18, 21

and 22 that the public can participate in and bring home ‘hidden gems’ from the

Los Angeles location. They include sought-after artwork, furniture, decorations

supplies and restaurant equipment all starting at $1 with no reserves.

Pacific Dining Car’s richly colored interior has been shown in films and TV series

numerous times. It was most famously featured in the 2001 crime drama “Training

Day,” starring Denzel Washington and the Showtime series “Shameless.” 

Some unusual auction items include the restaurant’s marquee sign currently

bidding at $1,510, an antler mirror currently at $1,030 and two framed dog paintings

for $3,225 for the pair.
