This special screening is part of the Art House Convergence's national day of celebrating the life of Jonathan Demme. Theaters across the country will join in by screening Demme’s iconic concert film, complete with a special pre-recorded intro and Q&A featuring Demme himself, David Byrne, and Janet Maslin.

STOP MAKING SENSE is considered by many to be the greatest rock concert film EVER!!!

J. Hailey writes:

David Byrne walks onto the stage and does a solo «Psycho Killer.» Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz join him for two more songs. The crew is busy, still setting up. Then, three more musicians and two back-up singers join the band. Everybody sings, plays, harmonizes, dances, and runs. They change instruments and clothes. Bryne appears in the Big Suit. The backdrop is often black, but sometimes it displays words, images, or children's drawings. The band cooks for 18 songs, the lyrics are clear, the house rocks. In this concert film, the Talking Heads hardly talk, don't stop, and always make sense.

Reserve your seat in advance and make a donation to tonight's nonprofit recipient, 4th Dimension Recovery Center. This community space provides a fun and safe environment for young people in drug and alcohol recovery to take action, build community, gain knowledge, and become empowered.
