The Matrix Reloaded Filming at White Bay Power Station

By Paul Martin December 27th, 2001, in The Matrix Reloaded

On February 14, the Matrix production will be filming at the gigantic White Bay power station near Sydney. A development application has been lodged to build a $200,000 film set for The Matrix Reloaded at the inner-western landmark, which stopped operating as a coal-fired power station in 1983. The plan is to explode the set, and cause a 20m high fireball at midnight on February 14. The explosion will last three to five seconds, and could reach a sound of 110 decibels. A chainsaw or average rock concert produces about 110 decibels of noise. The explosion needs to occur at midnight to ensure maximum darkness.
