"Du côté droite de la scène se trouve le salon de Scrooge." Can I replace 'Du côté' with 'Au côté'?

What is the difference between 'du côté de' and 'au côté de' ?

This question relates to:
French lesson "À côté de, en face de, à l'extérieur de, à l'intérieur de, près de, loin de, au coin de (prepositions)"

Hi Joan,

'Du côté droit de la scène', means 'on the right hand side of the stage'.

'A côté de ', means 'next to' .

There is an expression 'au côté de' meaning,  alongside .

Three very different meanings which will be used depending on  context...

Hope this helps!
