Universally acclaimed as one of the best concert films ever made, Stop Making Sense documents the groundbreaking band Talking Heads at their peak.

Filmed over the course of three nights in December 1983, and directed by 2010 Coolidge Award honoree Jonathan Demme, the film features classics such as "Psycho Killer" and "Burning Down the House," not to mention the inimitable stage presence of lead singer David Byrne. Hailed by legendarily cantankerous New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael as "a dose of happiness from beginning to end," Stop Making Sense is a must-see for film and music fans alike.

On Monday, September 29, dust off your big suits and come to the Coolidge for a one-night-only screening of this iconic film in celebration of its 30th anniversary.
