The Chemical Brothersí Donít Think to be shown ay Vue Southport

STUNNING visuals and dance anthems are set to transform Vue Southport in a screening of The Chemical Brothersí Donít Think at 10pm on Friday, 3 February 2012.

Donít Think is a live recording of the Chemical Brothersí concert in Japanís Glastonbury Ė Fujirock Festival, showcasing the dance duoís career, from nineties classic ĎHey Boy, Hey Girlí to mid-noughties smash ĎGalvaniseí and beyond, which are all given a modern mix.

The screening is filled with stimulating visuals including a racing deconstructed horse and toy robots that punctuate the set list of brutally modern electronic music brilliantly, pulling revellers and cinema-goers alike into the music.

Donít Think goes beyond the boundaries of the concert itself, providing a unique perspective of being at the show by following revellers as they make their way through the unconventional environment of the festival. These trips are part of the visual of the concert and are manipulated to meld with the musical experience.

Shot on location on Sunday, 31 July 2011, Donít Think is the first concert film to be mixed in Dolby Digital 7.1 Surround Sound.  Mark De Quervain, Sales and Marketing Director of Vue Entertainment, comments:- "Donít Think is an audio-visual feast that shows how concerts can translate onto the big screen. The high intensity music and visuals alone are impressive, but by adding the cinematography and production to the filming, it has become a version of the concert in its own right, providing a unique experience of the concert to cinema goers thatís not to be missed."

Tickets to screenings of Donít Think cost:- £12.50 and can be booked at:-

Film review:- "Mission Imposable 4, Ghost Protocol."

WELL it is not like the TV show. The Mission Impossible series has been all over the place in the cinemas and the 4th instalment is no exception. It is in our view, fun to watch, but lacks any type of realism or substance that makes you want to go back and see it again. In a year that is offering many good films, this is one we would say, wait to it hits the TV for. The story is as normal set around Ethan Hunt and his team, who are in this film racing against time to track down a dangerous terrorist named Hendricks. Hendricks has gained access to Russian nuclear launch codes and in the process the IMF has been framed. After a massive explosion causing severe destruction to the Kremlin, the President to invokes Ghost Protocol and disavowed all IMF members. With out help or backup in any form Ethan and his team chase Hendricks to Dubai, and from there to Mumbai in an attempt to stop nuclear war. With a few good jokes and some interesting action sequences, will the IMF do it again? You mission should you accept it is to find out!   We gave this a rating of 3 out of 5.

Our popcorn verdict - 3 out of 5

UK age rating:- this film is a 12a rated film in the UK.
Also Known As:- Mi4

Anyone who knew Mr Yearsley, or who has information about the whereabouts of his family, is asked to contact Sefton Coroner's Office on:- 0151 777 3480.
