PoV's lead actress outside Federico's Supper Club with Pronta Moda Hair Studio and Turistano International Travel in the background across the street.
That's a Wrap...
- The Making of Point of View


1728 Commercial Drive - Federico's Supper Club.  This is the Italian restaurant visited by the cast and crew of PoV to celebrate the conclusion of the filming of the movie.  It is located on a very long road lined with small businesses of many types.  Although the facilities for live music were visible, I went there too early in the night to see/hear anything of that nature.


When various PoV people stand outside Federico's and talk about their filming experiences near the end of the "making of" special, you can see the Italian named Pronta Moda Hair Studio and the Turistano International Travel shops across the road in the background.  At night, there is no red tinge to this area - the redness in PoV is merely due to a side-effect of the camera's night vision capabilities.


View of the seemingly endless shops along Commercial Drive.  This is as seen from the Turistano side of the street.  Federico's is the business with a dark purple awning to the extreme right centre.


My check from my evening meal at Federico's.  I sat on the bar platform area just to the right of the reception desk near the door and had an excellent view of the rest of the restaurant.  Food is of top quality and service is very friendly and prices are reasonable.  Night time ambience is similar to what one sees at the Alibi Room.  The owner's surname "Fuoco" means "fire" in Italian.
