The Matrix (Dir: Andy and Larry Wachowski, 1999).
Westin Hotel, Martin Place Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Location for the staircase scene. Most of the locations used in the filming of The Matrix were Sydney office blocks, including, the roof of AON Tower, Kent Street, the Allianz Building, Market Street, scene of the helicopter crash rescue and BT Tower, Market Street, into which Morpheus’s helicopter crashes dramatically. A good bit of trivia is that he internal shot of the helicopter crash was filmed at the Columbia Pictures screening rooms in Sydney. If you’re going to Sydney you’ll probably run into the locations for all the underground station scenes in Sydney’s small section of underground. Museum and St. James Station have the recognisable green tiles.
