Stop Making Sense Movie Party!


Celebrate the 35th anniversary of the greatest concert film of all-time, and get ready to stop making sense and just start dancing! Inflatable microphones will be provided so everyone can sing along, and don’t forget to wear your boogie shoes, because oh yes, there will be dancing!
Make way for The Big Suit! “Once in a lifetime” a concert film comes along like Stop Making Sense, director Jonathan Demme’s rocking tribute to the incomparable Talking Heads! Shot over the course of three action-packed nights at Hollywood’s historic Pantages Theater in December 1983, as the group was touring to promote their new album Speaking in Tongues, Stop Making Sense brilliantly captures the legendary Talking Heads at the height of their funky/punky/new wave power, and today, 35 years after its original release, the film has lost none of its rhythmic power and contagious energy, nor its ability to get a movie audience on its feet and dancing. Flaunting David Byrne’s famous Big Suit, the film reels from bright, funk-influenced danceables (“Life During Wartime,” “Take Me to the River”) to austere and atmospheric numbers such as the moving “Heaven” and the kinky “Psycho Killer.” Demme allows his roaming camera to focus on the stage action, swimming amongst the band members – Talking Heads Jerry Harrison, Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth and David Byrne, along with Parliament/Funkadelic keyboardist Bernie Worrell, percussionist Steve Scales and vocalists Lynn Mabry and Ednah Holt – and never forgetting that a concert film should be all about the music, nothing more and nothing less. What emerges is a truly thrilling blast of pure pop bliss. (Dir. by Jonathan Demme, 1984, USA, 88 mins., Not Rated)
