Suggested correction: The club is on a corner. It could be the side street.

Plot hole: There's no way for Albert to show up at the front door as Val's mother the night the Keeleys are there, as the only way out of his bedroom (which he is still in by the time the Keeleys show up) is through the door that leads into the living room where the Keeleys, Val and Armand are.
