"The overwhelming impression during STOP MAKING SENSE is of enormous energy, of life being lived at a joyous high." — Roger Ebert

One of the best concert movies of all time, and a Rose Theatre tradition--but this time in the Starlight Room. Come enjoy the sweet funky tunes of the Talking Heads. This movie is meant to be played loud, and it will be.

"A groundbreaking rock movie, filmed by director Jonathan Demme at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood in 1983.  Featuring some of your favorite Talking Heads songs including Psycho Killer, Take Me to the River and This Must Be the Place.  Come dance on the aisles, even the stage!  Here's an excerpt from Roger Ebert's original review of the film: "the film's peak moments come through Byrne's simple physical presence. He jogs in place with his sidemen; he runs around the stage; he seems so happy to be alive and making music. Like Springsteen and Prince, he serves as a reminder of how sour and weary and strung-out many rock bands have become. Starting with Mick Jagger, rock concerts have become, for the performers, as much sporting events as musical and theatrical performances. Stop Making Sense understands that with great exuberance." - Roger Ebert
