Stop Making Sense

Jonathan Demme made his documentary debut with this euphoric showcase for the Talking Heads, exploding from the stage just after their big mainstream success with the album Speaking in Tongues and the single “Burning Down the House.” We remember Jonathan in so many ways, but one of the best is to show this masterpiece of a live performance film—now celebrating its 35th anniversary—every single year. It never gets old. And as always, we promise to play it LOUD, the way Jonathan wanted.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

This film is part of the Sounds of Summer 2019: Music Films, Old and New series.
