The greatest concert film of all time, Stop Making Sense brings to the screen Talking Heads at Hollywood's Pantages Theater in December 1983: David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz, and Jerry Harrison, alongside an ecstatic ensemble of supporting musicians. Renowned filmmaker Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs) captures the band at their exhilarating best, in this new and complete restoration for the film’s 40th anniversary.
The special IMAX Live 40th anniversary event will include a screening of the film followed by a live stream Q&A reuniting the four original band members (Monday 11 September). The screening on Tuesday 12 September 19:00 will screen the Q&A as a recording from the evening before.
