Lights, camera, action in City of PAE

With our heritage buildings, unique architecture and picturesque beachfront, PAE is fast becoming a popular destination for film shoots. This includes transforming part of historic Port Adelaide into a location for the new Mortal Kombat movie reboot which is now shooting locally.

While settings such as the woolsheds in the Port and Semaphore foreshore have been long-time favourites for local photographers, they are now gaining more and more traction as locations for international filmmakers.

Recently, Harry Potter favourite, Daniel Radcliffe was here with a full crew to film his new movie Escape from Pretoria, with filming taking place in our Town Hall as well as locations around Port Adelaide. Australian icon Jackie Weaver was also spotted in Largs filming for an upcoming movie, Never Too Late.

In the past we’ve also had a popular Chinese TV soap opera crew film stunts around the streets in Port Adelaide and Semaphore, and there has been a whole host of smaller productions shot locally, from TV shows, to car commercials, to skate videos.
