Friday, June 25
Exposition Park, Los Angeles
Universally acknowledged as one of the best concert films ever made,
Stop Making Sense captures the energy, imagination
and joyous highs of Talking Heads at their peak.
WUTI in partnership with Crush Palace present the first of the Sounds of Summer film series at Exposition Park in Los Angeles with Stop Making Sense by Talking Heads. Stop Making Sense is considered to be one of the greatest concert films ever made, shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 1983 by Director Jonathan Demme. Kinetic, uplifting, intelligent but unpretentious, joyous but never pandering – on its release audiences danced through the aisles. The film famously opens with frontman David Byrne, his guitar and boombox, then proceeds to build the staging, and the band (including founding members bassist Tina Weymouth & drummer Chris Frantz and a show stealing cadre of backup singers) towards an ecstatic conclusion.
Stop Making Sense at Exposition Park (South Lawn, 500 Exposition Park Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90037) is a “once in a lifetime” opportunity for lovers of cinema who want to feel the excitement of large scale in-person events again. The Sounds of Summer series is for all of us that have missed the experience of shared music over the past year. Now that we can finally be in-person S.O.S. brings the finest musically driven, landmark cinema to screens for us to celebrate together! Each Sounds of Summer event is set to be a unique experience with director conversations, featured talent, guest DJs, and unexpected happenings.
Curated food, beverage and alcohol concessions will be available exclusively through the GoPuff app via geo-fenced technology. Guests will be able to order items online at gopuff.com or via the gopuff app throughout the film screening series for pickup onsite.
Fifteen percent of the ticket sales and concession profits will be donated to My Friend’s Place.
