THE MATRIX RESURRECTION
San Francisco, CA
PAINTING THE CITY GREEN
Naturally, Warner Bros. opted out of the standard red carpet for the event, in favor of a green one. The long-awaited fourth installment of the Matrix franchise — the first film in the series in over 18 years — premiered at San Francisco’s Castro Theater yesterday, December 18. Prior to the film's first U.S. showing, various San Francisco landmarks, as well as SFO, sported a green hue in honor of the cinematic event.
The "green carpet" was teeming with A-list stars... which caused many to crowd the Castro in hopes of seeing any one of them walking the neighborhood, before and after to the debut. Many of The Matrix Resurrections' scenes were filmed throughout San Francisco, capturing action scenes that took place in Chinatown, North Beach, and downtown.
