Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense to be restored and re-released in theaters
Talking Heads‘ legendary 1984 concert film Stop Making Sense is getting restored in 4K and re-released in theaters via A24, according to a report from Deadline. In a fun new promo for the restored film, Byrne picks up his famous suit from the concert film at the dry cleaner (which also ties in nicely with Byrne’s musical contributions to recent best-picture winner, Everything Everywhere All At Once). Watch it below.
To coincide with the newly released restoration of the film, which will hit theaters later this year, Rhino plans to reissue the album on vinyl, featuring the complete concert. Stop Making Sense, directed by Jonathan Demme, was shot over three nights at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles in December 1983. In 2021, the film was added to the National Film Registry.
