USA
Performance

Considered by critics as the greatest concert film of all time, the live performance was shot over the course of three nights at Hollywood’s Pantages Theatre in December of 1983.

We have brought this back after our sell-out Autumn screening as a result of countless requests by both customers who saw it in October, and those who missed out. ★★★★★ The Guardian

In Detail

Newly restored in 4K to coincide with its 40th anniversary, director Jonathan Demme captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of Talking Heads in this concert movie shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 1983.

The band’s frontman, David Byrne, first appears on an empty stage, armed with only an acoustic guitar, and is gradually joined by bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz, keyboardist Jerry Harrison and a cadre of backup singers as they perform the band’s hits, culminating in an iconic performance featuring Byrne in an enormous suit.

'Stop Making Sense' brilliantly represents Demme’s endless love of musical performance and gleeful urgency.
