Stop Making Sense
Summer Patio Film Series at Bayside Bowl
Over the course of three nights at Hollywood’s Pantages Theater in December 1983, filmmaker Jonathan Demme joined creative forces with cinematographer Jordan Cronenweth and Talking Heads… and miracles occurred. Following a staging concept by singer-guitarist David Byrne, this euphoric concert film transcends that all-too-limited genre to become the greatest film of its kind. A guaranteed cure for anyone’s blues, it’s a celebration of music that never grows old, fueled by the polyrhythmic pop-funk precision that was a Talking Heads trademark, and lit from within by the geeky supernova that is David Byrne.
This is a free outdoor screening on the back patio at Bayside Bowl – 58 Alder St, Portland. Film starts at sunset. Seating and patio capacity ARE limited, please consider arriving early and bringing your own folding chair or blanket. There is a mobile walk-up patio beer stand and waitstaff will be available to take food and beverage orders from the bar and kitchen.
