Stop Making Sense

The tradition is back at the Oriental Theatre, with screenings the final Saturday of each month. Newly restored in 4K to coincide with its 40th anniversary, the 1984 film was directed by renowned filmmaker Jonathan Demme and is considered by critics as the greatest concert film of all time. StTOP MAKING SENSE stars core band members David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz, and (Milwaukee's own!) Jerry Harrison along with Bernie Worrell, Alex Weir, Steve Scales, Lynn Mabry and Edna Holt. The live performance was shot over the course of three nights at Hollywood's Pantages Theater in December of 1983 and features Talking Heads' most memorable songs.
