Red Widow at Lana Lou’s


Red Widow, an ABC TV Show about Marta Walraven (Radha Mitchell), a San Francisco mobster’s widow who has to take over as head of a crime syndicate after her husband is murdered, filmed inside Lana Lou’s restaurant on Powell Street in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside yesterday.

Luke Goss, Erin Cahill, Goran Visnjic and Rade Serbedzija were all on set when I was there.
