FSOG Movie Location For The Bike Corner
In FSOG Christian takes Ana down the street from the Heathman to a local coffee shop for coffee. After they leave the coffee shop they walk back to the Heathman. When they are at the corner across from the hotel they have to wait to cross the street.
“We’re back at the intersection, across the road from the hotel.”
“I have to get away from him. I walk forward, and I trip, stumbling headlong into the road.”
“Shit, Ana!” Grey cries. He tugs the hand that he’s holding so hard that I fall back against him just as a cyclist whips past, narrowly missing me, heading the wrong way up this one-way street.
After the incident with the bike Ana leaves Christian on the corner.
The location of the corner in Portland is on SW Broadway in front of the hotel. When they filmed the scene in Vancouver B.C. they used the Gaslamp area as it did resemble parts of Portland with the brick roads and gaslamp lighting. In Portland we have an area of town called The Pearl and here is where you would find similar streets and lighting. Where the Heathman is located is more modern looking like the rest of our downtown streets. The first day I visited the corner in Vancouver B.C. it was pouring rain. I did visit the corner restaurant Peckinpah where they filmed. When I went back another day the weather was sunnier to take some more photos and I went inside and met two of the guys working. They were working the day of the filming and said they may be in the movie. I snapped a photo of their menu which looked delicious. The intersection of streets in front of the restaurant corner is called Gassy Jack Square featuring the statue of Gassy Jack. Just down the street is where they filmed the coffee house at Rainier Provisions. Also close is the book store where Christian purchases books for Ana. There is also a few blocks away the Burrard Iron Works where they filmed the nightclub where Ana drunk dials to Christian and he comes and gets her. They also used a block area near here for the location of Ana’s apartment. The blocks in the Gaslamp area were also used for the jogging scenes with both Jamie and Dakota. The photos of the Bike Corner in Portland are located here on my website.
