Last night the global premiere of The Chemical Brothers; Don’t Think, directed by Adam Smith, took place in 25 cities across the globe. The verdict from the 4000 dedicated fans lucky enough to have secured a ticket was unanimous: It was a one of a kind movie theatre experience clearly not to be missed! The premiere in London saw exuberant fans, including Keira Knightley as well as The Chemical Brothers and Adam Smith, dancing* in the aisles and applauding along with the Fuji crowd, a reaction mirrored in cities across the world from Auckland, New York to Buenos Aires.
Don’t Think has clearly redefined the cinematic experience, an art form which The Chemical Brothers are evidently immersed and well-versed in, as only two weeks ago, Tom Rowlands picked up the L.A film critics awards for best score for The Chemical Brothers work on Hanna.
For those that weren’t successful in securing a ticket to these sell out premieres, The Chemical Brothers will bring their in-theatre concert event, The Chemical Brothers: Don’t Think to more than 200 select movie theatres across the U.S. FOR ONLY ONE NIGHT on Wednesday February 1, 2012. Tickets for this critically lauded and utterly jaw dropping event are available at participating theatre box offices and online at:

"’Don’t Think’ jolts you from the cinema deep into the violently psychedelic heart of a Japanese rave. This, like the Chemical Brothers’ best work, is a neck bracing tour de force to behold. Scary, sublime, trippy, exhilarating. Don’t think, just swoon." Rolling Stone
"A feast for the mind" IFC
“..One of the best films about dance music ever made.” The Guardian
“An astonishing, celluloid rush of blood to the head.” The Sunday Telegraph
