I believe in 2006 there was a Coachella film screening on the campgrounds and thought it would be a fun idea to do the same for the Chemical Brothers film since it'll be released in March. The Arclight screening was pretty amazing... I could only imagine how crazy it would get at Coachella.

(At least weekend one for me)

EDIT 3/12: In an attempt to try and get Goldenvoice to put this together please get everyone you know to tweet:

screening of @ChemBros #DONTthink at @coachella on THURSDAY night! make it happen @goldenvoice !!! #please?

Hopefully if enough people send this out they will listen!

Fantastic idea! How was the screening set up in 2006? Sadly 2006 falls in the BC period of my life.

Unfortunately I was in line waiting to get into the campground during the screening. I'm sure just a big screen and some good speakers would be sufficient though.

Would be a terrific way to make up for their shortened set last year.. Fuck the Kings of Leon.

I have a good audio setup for my campground and an elevated platform you could put a projector on.

So just get a projector and a big white sheet and hit me up. You should make it happen.

Thats awesome! I don't have a projector but I could definitely try and find one to bring. If anybody else happens to have one on hand and would be willing to bring it that would be amazing. I'll definitely have the blu ray and a blu ray player.

Also I'm going to be there weekend one... Which weekend are you guys going?

That would be dope!! Would set the tone for a great weekend of music. I just saw the documentary Regeneration Music Project and that was epic. That should definitely be considered for a screening if it has been released by then...

You should edit your first post and include that you're going to Weekend 1.

At this point it seems like our best bet to experience this is to somehow convince Goldenvoice to set it up for the campers. Any ideas on who to forward this thread to?

Pretty sure this would need to be independently done by campers; royalty fees etc unless the bros and co allow a free screening for coachella
4 projectors and a lot of speakers at the edge of a street would be optimal

Good point. Didn't think about all the legalities. Well unfortunately I do not have any of this equipment but I am more than willing to bring the bluray and a bluray player to weekend one. I'll still keep an eye out for a projector and screen but If anybody else has any resources to make it happen that would be cool.

screens would be easy - white sheets, probably the border of someones campsite/ walls of an extended easy up

projector, bass heavy speakers and power supply is a whole other story.

but lets all work on it :)

best dance party of the weekend could be in the camp grounds if all factors are proper

Actually, I'm pretty sure that as long as they don't sell tickets specifically for the screening that they would not need to pay royalties. it would be like a public screening at a college campus' free movie night.
as long as no one profits from the screening, there would be no royalties, as you cant take a percentage of $0

So should we make a tweet along the lines of:

"Since Kings of Leon f***ed over Chemical Brothers last year we would appreciate a screening of their full live set. Please entertain us with a screening of Don't Think on the campgrounds Thursday night!"

Unfortunately as I'm coming from Vancouver I can't offer much help with this. I'll be keeping track of this thread though, and I hope someone can make it work.

My group is bringing a large projector (we have 6 camping spots) and a screen to project visuals on and it just occurred to me that we could easily play Don't Think on it for at least SOME to enjoy! Will post more details later on and I will be at weekend 2 and I will be able to post our campsite location on this thread in April!

FML, weekend one peeps have no hope!

I might just plug a portable DVD player into my car and turn the bass up. I'm dancing my ass off to that movie one way or another on Thursday night.

So we haven't had much luck finding people with the resources to set this up weekend one, myself included.

So I just edited my first post asking everyone to tweet:

screening of @ChemBros #DONTthink at @coachella on THURSDAY night! make it happen @goldenvoice !!! #please?

Hopefully this thing could start trending and actually happen!

So what if I said that our group is bringing a projector/blu ray-player to weekend one? Anyone have sufficient power and audio to do this in a way that would make the brothers proud?

Are generators allowed on the campsite? I can try and find a generator if so. As for sound I don't have anything that powerful.

EDIT: Nevermind just checked the FAQ and no generators are allowed. What other power options are there?
