The Hippodrome Cinema is proud to present “Stop Making Sense,” a Talking Heads tribute.
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.
Following the Hipp’s screening of “Stop Making Sense,” attendees can jam out at The Atlantic during a night of music inspired by Talking Heads. The Atlantic is located at 15 N Main St.; their event starts at 10 p.m.
Directed by: Jonathan Demme
