Among the most celebrated concert films of all time, the Jonathan Demme-directed Stop Making Sense captures Talking Heads at the peak of their live powers during December 1983 performances at Los Angeles’ Pantages Theater. It was added to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 2021 in recognition of its cultural and historical significance.

In a rare show of unity from the famously fractious band, David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison assembled for the first time in 20-plus years last September during a Stop Making Sense screening at the Toronto International Film Festival. The quartet appeared at several other similar events throughout the fall and sat for a series of joint interviews about the project.

Last weekend, A24 kicked off new theatrical residencies for Stop Making Sense in several worldwide cities. A 4K and Blu-ray release of the film is coming on May 1.
