Stop Making Sense


Friday, August 5, 2016
9:30 pm - 11:00 pm


The San Francisco Chronicle asks: “Has there ever been a live concert film as vibrant or as brilliantly realized?” We certainly don’t think so. Jonathan Demme made his documentary debut with this infectious masterpiece showcasing the Talking Heads, just after their big mainstream success with the album Speaking in Tongues and the single “Burning Down the House.” You don’t need to be a David Byrne fan to love Stop Making Sense. The last time we showed it, the audience was dancing in the aisles.
