Anechoic Chamber used in new Brad Pitt film Ad Astra

Has anyone who’s seen this film enjoyed the location used that is what looks like a very old and worn anechoic chamber? It’s supposed to be a secure room on a moon base used for sending a voice message deeper into space.

My guess is they shot in an existing chamber rather than build one.

Any insights into where that chamber could be?

Just saw it in IMAX, but no clue, thought about Hifi, too in this moment :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’m going Monday.

However, I’m not going to see it in IMAX.

I have a snob attitude toward film in that I will only pay for an IMAX room if all or most of the film was shot in IMAX. Ad Astra was photographed in 2.39 : 1.

It looks similar but not exactly like the anechoic chamber at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, NJ. The sound absorbing wedges look like the correct size and have that worn out look I remember (it was built in the 1940s), but the spring-loaded wire “floor” looks a little different, though it could just be the lighting. I got a tour of it not long ago. Very cool place, and it has its own recording studio setup.
