Film Production in Santurce

Santurce has become one of the most popular areas for Puerto Rico’s film industry. The corner of Ponce de Leon and Calle Bolivar was the setting for several days filming for Johnny Depp and The Rum Diary.  The interior driveway next to Equity Plaza was used as a stand-in for the San Juan Star’s printing plant in the final scenes of the movie.
Around the corner on Calle Bolivar was the site for for some scenes from Jennifer Lopez and Mark Anthony’s El Cantante bio-pic about the life of singer Hector Lavoe.
