Home / Now Showing / STOP MAKING SENSE
The greatest concert film of all time, STOP MAKING SENSE brings to the screen Talking Heads at Hollywood’s Pantages Theater in December 1983: David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison, alongside an ecstatic ensemble of supporting musicians. Renowned filmmaker Jonathan Demme (SILENCE OF THE LAMBS) captures the band at their exhilarating best, in this new and complete restoration for the film’s 40th anniversary.
