Stop Making Sense

Ends November 1, 2023

40th Anniversary / New 4K Restoration

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.

In addition to our new releases, be sure to join us for these special limited, or one-time-only, screenings.

“Has there ever been a live concert film as vibrant or as brilliantly realized? I don't think so.” —Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle

“Watching it leaves you lighter, happier, younger — dancing your way out of the theater to the Heads’ irresistible beats.” —Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times
