Movies With A Beat: Stop Making Sense

On the Coastal Eye Care screen

Sponsored by WERU

(1984. US. 1hr, 39 min. Directed by Jonathan Demme. NR.)“Burning Down The House.” “Take Me To The River.” These hits and much, much more are performed by The Talking Heads in what Rolling Stone magazine called “the greatest concert film ever made.” The movie, made during a three-day concert gig at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, was director Jonathan Demme’s first feature-length documentary and it bursts with what Roger Ebert called an “enormous energy, of life being lived at a joyous high.” Media sponsor WERU invites one and all to enjoy the 35th anniversary of this electrifying concert film and the Talking Heads’ incredible music. With Bernie Worrell on synthesizers.
