FEATURED ATTRACTION

TALKING HEADS: STOP MAKING SENSE d. Jonathan Demme, 1984 at The Five Bells (04 FEB 20:00):

  • Deeper Into Movies presents: “Boomboxes, baggy suits, pogoing, pendulum-swinging kneecaps – there will never be another film like STOP MAKING SENSE. Part of this is owed to Talking Heads, a band at the top of their game. But it wouldn’t exist in its dynamic, unique form if it wasn’t for director Jonathan Demme.” – NME
