More Info

Art House Convergence presents a national day of celebrating the life of Jonathan Demme with a special screening of STOP MAKING SENSE on Wednesday, July 19 at 7:00 PM. Theaters across the country will join in by screening Demme’s iconic concert film throughout the day, complete with a special pre-recorded intro and Q&A featuring Demme himself, David Byrne, and Janet Maslin. Regular ticket prices apply.

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.
