TOM'S FILM CLUB: STOP MAKING SENSE (PG)
Shot over the course of a few nights at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre by the late great Jonathan Demme, this is the seminal and celebrated concert film that was produced at the height of Talking Heads’ popularity, just as the group were starting to tour and promote their album, Speaking in Tongues, in 1983.
The film showcases a truly unique and energetic performance, utilising every element of the stage to create a concert experience like no other. Big lamps, big sets and big suits all come into play throughout the show, but it’s the bands phenomenal performance and idiosyncratic style that shine through the theatrics.
Now celebrating its 35th anniversary, this is a great opportunity to revisit and relive one of the greatest and most innovative bands of the 1980s at the peak of their powers, same as it ever was!
This is a 14+ event (under 16s to be accompanied).
