City and County of San Francisco: On 10 October 2000, an EXT. PHOTO BOOTH scene was shot on Pier 7 off the Embarcadero, but it didn't make it in the movie. On 11 October 2000, shots were done on Columbus Avenue at Broadway, the San Francisco Ferry Building, California & Mason Streets (also edited out), and from one of the Golden Gate Transit ferries. Additional shots include views of Chinatown and the Transamerica Pyramid (see below) and the Golden Gate Bridge.
