March 29 – 30

Join WBEZ and the hosts of popular podcast Sound Opinions on March 29 to celebrate 40 years of the greatest concert films of all time, Stop Making Sense. Put on your dancing shoes and meet us at the venue that first brought the film to Chicago audiences, the Studebaker Theater.

The film, recently restored by A24 films in 4K, documents the Talking Heads at Hollywood’s Pantages Theater in December 1983: David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz, and Jerry Harrison, alongside an ecstatic ensemble of supporting musicians. Renowned filmmaker Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs) captures the band at their exhilarating best, in this new and complete restoration.

Arrive before the screening for a special preview and presentation from Sound Opinions hosts, Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot.

A limited number of event posters designed by Chicago-based illustrator Ryan Duggan will be available for purchase online and at the event. Bundle and save! Save $5 when you buy your ticket and poster together.

Sound Opinions Presentation: 7:30 pm
Screening of Stop Making Sense: 8:00 pm
