The Matrix Reloaded Filming at White Bay Power Station

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.
