Description

“Hi. I’ve got a tape I wanna play.” We’re dusting off our giant suit and preparing to burn down the house at our annual screening of Jonathan Demme’s quintessential concert film. An exhilarating, ahead-of-its time masterpiece shot over three nights in 1984, Stop Making Sense captures the infectious energy, daring theatrics and pure euphoria of the Talking Heads performing at the top of their game. Get ready to dance in the aisles with David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Jerry Harrison and the rest of the band as we revisit one of the greatest music films of all time.
