Last time we screened Stop Making Sense, we had over 400 people singing and dancing in the aisles. Once again, we’re dusting off our giant suit and preparing to burn down the house with Jonathan Demme’s unforgettable collaboration with the Talking Heads. The definition of capturing lightning in a bottle, Demme and the band are in perfect harmony in this inventive and exhilarating masterpiece that finds the group at the peak of their powers. Get ready for pure musical ecstasy with David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Jerry Harrison and the rest of the Talking Heads—and be prepared to sing and dance in the aisles!

Arrive early as we kick off the night with DJ Moe Berg and drink specials.
