The Salida SteamPlant is proud to host a new series, Songs OnScreen. We invite all to take a tuneful journey each month with a performance-filled film profiling some of music’s biggest names, both past and present, or a story that is driven by the soul of the music. Monthly screenings take place Thursdays beginning in March (unless otherwise noted). A cash bar, popcorn, and concessions will be available.
This Month’s Film: Stop Making Sense
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.
Tickets are $9.00 and available at the SteamPlant box office and online here.
