Spiculated masses and architectural distortions are the predominant appearances of invasive lobular carcinoma so yes, it does show up on mammography (film or digital).  If there are any symptoms, then further evaluation of the region of clinical concern should be investigated i.e. with more focused imaging or tissue sampling.
