Open air screening for Chemical Brothers film

A nice event to kick start the weekend is booked in for this Friday night in the heart of town.

Independent Cinema MK has teamed up with MK Gallery and City Nights regulars Beatcheck.

Collectively they are bringing a rather tasty outdoor cinema experience to the hub of the Theatre District, and it’s a musical trip that no discerning Chemical Brothers fan will want to miss.

Don’t Think, which captured the audivisual excellence of The Chemical Brothers when they played the Fuji Rock Festival back in 2011, has been widely heralded in the past year.

But tomorrow’s screening will be the first time it has ever aired in Milton Keynes.

Beatcheck – responsible for bringing everyone from Annie Nightingale to Beardyman to the new city – will take the lead musically tomorrow night too, with their resident DJs starting up the sounds before film director Adam Smith (who has also let his creative eyes loose on episodes of Doctor Who and Skins) introduces the film that will take all attentions.

As the sun sets, Don’t Think will begin, and we reckon that dancing is about as likely as time wasting at a council meeting...

Post-show, the Beatcheck After Party will swing into action with international DJ delight Slyde at the helm.

The local arm will be well represented too, mind, with DJ Shift, Spatts (The Criminal Minds), Andy Black and Spencer Martin keeping you nimble on your feet through to the early hours.

If you want to take in the film and then head home, tickets will set you back £6.

But, if you don’t want to be seen as a lightweight and want to extract every last drop of musical delight from the airing and the aftershow party, tickets will take a mere tenner from your cash pot.

It’s over 18s only for this bash, and tickets can be bought direct from the gallery for the event, which falls under the MK Calling Banner.
