Trivia

The pneumatic air-hiss of the doors opening and closing was created by the sound effects editor, who aimed a can of compressed air into a five-gallon plastic water jug. He would pull the tube of the air nozzle out of the jug while pressing the button, which produced the doors' sound.

The lift (elevator) is almost certainly not a real one but via lighting effects this is not obvious. The lights in the elevator car are apparently off while travelling between floors and are lit when the car comes to a stand at the destination floor. Although this is strange operation of the car lights the viewer accepts this and the elevator seems quite realistic.
