When you make a movie with the likes of Gary Busey, Tom Sizemore and Daniel Baldwin, it’s definitely time to celebrate. That’s what Vancouver’s talented Silvio Pollio did at the DVD launch of his “Shut Up and Shoot” movie. Pollio and several other cast members, including Joe Cortese, toasted the occasion at the Can-Am Importique studios in Burnaby which was the perfect setting since owner Paul Pincott is known for warehousing one of the city’s biggest collections of movie set paraphernalia. Also the culinary stars were out last week as David and Manjy Sidoo relaunched the newest version of their Lumiere restaurant. Located in Kitsilano, the new view in dining has come courtesy of New York living legend Daniel Boulud who also lends his name to the adjoining DB Bistro (formerly known as Feenie’s).
