“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston will visit Astoria tonight for a screening of his latest film.

Cranston, who is also known for his roles in “Malcolm in the Middle” and his appearances on “Seinfeld,” will attend the screening of “Trumbo” at the Museum of the Moving Image, 36-01 35th Ave., at 8 p.m.

“Trumbo” dramatizes the story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, whose career came crashing to a halt when he became a victim of the Hollywood blacklist in the late 1940s.

“‘Trumbo’ tells the story of the Oscar-winning writer’s war with the U.S. government and studio bosses over words and freedom, which entangled Hollywood icons from Hedda Hopper and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger,” according to a statement sent out by the museum.

Director Jay Roach will also attend the screening.

Tickets cost $30 and are already sold out. However, the museum is offering standby tickets and will attempt to get as many people as possible into the screening.

It is unlikely that Cranston will take questions from the audience after the screening, according to a spokeswoman for the museum.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
