For EDM fans, there are only a handful of live experiences worth hundreds of dollars. And while we wait patiently for Daft Punk to announce a new tour, the Chemical Brothers reign supreme as old-school dance masters we just gotta see.
Luckily, Miamians are about to get the chance to knock this one off their bucket list for way cheaper and in a climate-controlled environment, foregoing the trauma of Ultra Music Festival's Porta Potty.
On Wednesday, February 1, the Chemical Brothers are bringing their epic live show to select theaters with Don't Think, a concert documentary shot in Fiji.
Chemical Brothers' Don't Think Theaters in South Florida
-Cinemark Paradise 24, Fort Lauderdale
-Cypress Creek Station 16, Fort Lauderdale
-AMC Sunset Place 24, Miami
-The Falls 12, Miami
-South Beach Stadium 18, Miami Beach
Concert movies aren't a new phenomenon. In 2006, Coachella put a festival movie together. Just last year, Electric Daisy Carnival unleashed its one-day-only, big-screen festival film experience, Electronic Daisy Carnival Experience. And this March, the Ultra fest will drop Can U Feel It: : The UMF Experience, "a 45-minute film about the rise of dance music, through the eyes of the world's greatest DJs, at one of the world's largest events."
Even Justin Bieber has his own concert movie. However, the Biebz can't compete with the mind-blowing light explosion that is the Chemical Brothers live setup.
It remains to be seen how wild the crowds will get in the aisles of SoFla's megaplexes. But word on the street is that fans got pretty crazy during the global premiere last week.
Please, though, leave the glow sticks at home. Some of us will be trying to watch a movie.
Don't Think opens at select theaters on at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 1. Visit fathomevents.com.
