Talking Heads’ ‘Stop Making Sense’ to Hit Theaters Again

Mr. Nimbus | 01/18/2024

If you missed last year’s big screen re-release of the Talking Heads‘ landmark 1984 concert film Stop Making Sense you’re in luck. The movie will be back in select theaters in the U.S., Canada and U.K. starting Jan. 27 after its well-received 2023 4K re-release.

The latest reboot is thanks to independent film company A24 (Everything Everywhere All At Once, Uncut Gems), which snagged the worldwide rights to the film to coincide with its 40th anniversary. According to Variety, the film will have residencies in a number of cities during the run, including Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and others.

A24 is releasing a special collection of merch that will be on sale at select theaters, including a collector’s edition 4K and Blu-ray release of the Jonathan Demme-directed movie that is considered by many to be one of the greatest concert films of all time. The studio will also release a Talking Heads tribute album later this year, which has been teased with a Paramore cover of “Burning Down the House.” The album will also feature 15 other as-yet-unannounced artists covering songs that will recreate the film’s setlist.

The New York rock band fronted by singer David Byrne and featuring bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz and keyboardist/guitarist Jerry Harrison formed in 1975 and released eight albums before splitting in 1991. They reformed fro one night at the Heads’ 2002 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and came back together last year to promote the re-release of the film, which Variety reported pulled in $5 million at the box office during the A24 re-release, besting the haul for the initial 41-week run ($4.95 million) of the movie in 1984.
